Great doubay 2007-06-16 7:03

Hi Deniz!
That’s funny. I have taken a photo of a red dressed headscarf girl too when we were at the Suleymaniye mosque. It is only a simple shot and not as sophisticated as yours though. This lady in red behind the ornamental lattice and its shadow is “all the money” as we say in Greek. Great snapshot!
Btw: Could this red coloured dress code imply a political message, a sort of an oxymoronical patriotic, islamistic, kemalistic, “let us Turks be united” all in one statement?

Default To doubay: red

Hi Andreas,
You always find interesting issues for paying attention, and your curiosity in different subjects is something i like a lot.
Well, red of this woman...
I checked some web sites in Turkish in order to find a symbolic meaning of this red clothing.
They mainly say that this is something psychological, meaning that: "i close my head, therefore i am obviously bound to islamic doctrine. but i am also more open to the world compared to those scarfed women in black."
the inscriptions also say that, such bright colors show the social status and self confidence of the woman regarding her economic wealth.
it was interesting for me to see a scarfed woman in such attractive colors though. she was well cared after, a ray-ban on her nose and with a well make-up on her nose. i am rather doubtful whether this kind of attire is her daily usual. because some woman close their heads when they only go to mosques.
regarding the political issues, i could not find anything related to the symbolic meaning of the colors.
