This lovely Whirling Dervish - Semazen embroidery hoop art was 100% made by me (absolutely no machines involved! ) from designing the image to stitching on my felt applique with beautifully colored DMC and Anchor cotton flosses and stretching the final piece into a 5 inch wooden embroidery hoop, then finally backed with felt.

The screw at the top allows this to be hung on a nail or pin, you could also place the hoop on a shelf, ledge or fireplace, etc.

You will get this exact piece pictured here, which means it's finished and ready to be shipped!

This embroidery will be delivered to you in an organza bag and wrapped in bubble wrap for it’s safe journey to your doorstep. Your item will be shipped via registered Air Mail with tracking number.

As I mentioned in my shop announcement some of my items have an influence from Turkey and for me one of the most popular attractions of Turkey are the Whirling dervishes!

About Semazen - Whirling Dervish

Sufi whirling (or Sufi spinning), is a turning meditation that originated among Sufis, which is still practiced by the Dervishes of the Mevlevi order. It is a symbolic ritual through which dervishes (also called semazens) aim to reach the “perfect” (kemal). The aim is to abandon one’s nafs, egos or personal desires, by listening to God and the music (hence the term sema), thinking about God and whirling which has been compared to the orbiting of the planets in the Solar System around the sun. As explained by Sufis: In the symbolism of the Sema ritual, the semazen’s camel’s hair hat (sikke) represents the tombstone of the ego; his wide, white skirt represents the ego’s shroud. By removing his black cloak, he is spiritually reborn to the truth. At the beginning of the Sema, by holding his arms crosswise, the semazen appears to represent the number one, thus testifying to God’s unity. While whirling, his arms are open: his right arm is directed to the sky, ready to receive God’s beneficence; his left hand, upon which his eyes are fastened, is turned toward the earth. The semazen conveys God’s spiritual gift to those who are witnessing the Sema. Revolving from right to left around the heart, the semazen embraces all humanity with love. The human being has been created with love in order to love. Mevlâna Jalâluddîn Rumi says, “All loves are a bridge to Divine love. Yet, those who have not had a taste of it do not know!”
