Katara – the Cultural Village Foundation in co-operation with the Istanbul Intercultural Dialogue IKASD and Mazaya company has opened an art exhibition titled ‘The Horse is Turk’s Wings’ in building 18. The opening ceremony was attended by HE Sheikh Faisal bin Qassim al-Thani, Katara general manager Dr Khalid bin Ibrahim al-Sulaiti, Turkish ambassador Fikret Ozer and other dignitaries.
The exhibition by Turkish artist Ayten Caglar who spent 10 years studying the Turkish horses closely reflects the beauty of the majestic creatures and their importance for the Turkish nation. Ozer said that Qatar and Turkey not only co-operate in political and economic fields, but also in cultural events and this exhibition is an example of the cultural co-operation between the two nations.
Nearly 23 paintings are on display, classified into two sections – one focuses on the horses in the Ottoman era and their importance to the Sultans. The second section sheds light on different breeds of Turkish horses and highlights their beauty. The exhibition will run until February 26 at building 18 in Katara.
