Artist's Description

Ancient house built in volcanic tuff stone near Rose Valley in Kapadokya (Cappadocia), Middle Anatolia, Turkey.

The landscape of Cappadocia (Kapadokya) in Middle Anatolia of Turkey was created about 30 million years ago. The ashes, which covered the earth by massive volcanic eruptions, became an erosive material called “tuff”.

Through rain, wind and temperature fluctuations caused in the course of time various forms, such as cones in the stone or the so-called “fairy chimneys”, of which former residents of the region believed, that they were inhabited by fairies.
