Artist's Description

The Remembrance of Allah – A Sufi Whirling Dervish is an original minimalist painting of a semazen who conveys God’s spiritual gift to those who are witnessing the Sema. A unique gift with a Turkish whirling dervish theme.. Perfect for those who want to share a symbolic message of ego and truth, spiritualism, followers on Mevlana and Rumi or those who have a dervis theme in their lives and home.

ABOUT THE ART
©‎ Painting 1 January 2009 Tracey Harrington Simpson
Adapted from Amedeo Preziosi – Turks here
The original work of art is in the Public Domain because of its age.

In the symbolism of the Sema ritual, the semazen camel 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!”
