DESIGN: Hittite Design

This design gets its name from the Hittite Civilization (1600BC).
When developing this design people got inspired from the daily life of the Hittites and the nature around Cappadocia-Turkey.
It is a black & white version with primitive depictions of the deer which was used as a symbol of peace by the Hittites. The triangle shaped little patterns are all representing the physical features of the area such as the highlands, fairy chimneys, valleys etc.
You can see that the patterns are always drawn in ring-shaped lines, that’s to symbolize the sun as it was the goddess of the Hittites.



SHAPE

The pitcher has a very unique and special shape that comes from the Hittite period 1600 BC, Cappadocia. It was originally used for serving wine as Cappadocia is also very famous with its wineries.
It is made from 4 different parts;

1. bottom/stand
2. circle
3. handle
4. spout

The circle shape in the middle symbolizes the sun which was the goddess of the Hittite Civilization and they had special wine drinking ceremonies.
They started the ceremony when the sun shined thru the hole. By putting the arm thru the circle and holding it on the shoulder, they poured the wine from the special pitcher.

This unusual shape is still being made in our town Avanos and the original ones that were found in archeological digs around the region are now on display in the Anatolian Civilization Museum in our capital, Ankara.
