SKU: 151 Category: Tags: ,


This ceramic statues of Göbeklitepe are handmade copies of my favorite T-shaped pillars (monoliths) from the area. Since I visited Göbeklitepe in 2019, my inspiration was to create the small versions of the T-shaped pillars. Life-size statues are amazing, therefore I tried to give each detail when I worked with clay. The last 3 photos were taken from the area.

This 3-piece-statue set contains the monoliths below (according to mapped and numbered area during the excavations):
– Pillar 2 in Enclosure A with three motifs: bull (or aurochs), fox and crane
H: 16.5 cm, W: 5 cm, D: 3 cm
– Pillar 37, the central pillar of Enclosure C, with the motif of a fox -with the detail of male genitalia
H:10.5 cm, W:6.5 cm, D: 2 cm
– The 3rd pillar, with the sculpture of lion
H:10.5 cm, W: 6.5 cm, D:1.5 cm
Some background on Göbeklitepe:
Göbekli Tepe (“Potbelly Hill”) is a Neolithic archaeological site near the city of Şanlıurfa in Southeastern Anatolia, Turkey. Dating back to the Pre-Pottery Neolithic, the site is the oldest man-made place of worship yet discovered. Göbeklitepe displays unique archaeological findings while preserving its existence with an untouched natural environment for 12000 years.
The site comprises a number of large circular structures supported by massive stone pillars. In the centre of the enclosures/rounds stand always two bigger pillars, with a height of over 5m. The T-shape is clearly an abstract depiction of the human body seen from the side. Each T-shaped monolithic pillar contains carved reliefs of animals – gazelles, snakes, foxes, and lions – as well as abstract characters and icons.
Talking about Göbeklitepe, I would also like to commemorate Klaus Schmidt, the former head of the Göbekli Tepe research project and head of excavations until his unexpected death 7 years ago.
