Yataghans, pusikans and a silk atlas sky –
the Turkish Chamber

The Turkish Chamber in the Dresden Castle (Residenzschloss) is a window that provides insights into two cultures: the Turkish and the Arab. The magnificent saddle cloths, the muskets decorated with mother of pearl, corals and gilt silver, and particularly the 16 m (52 ft) long, almost completely preserved 17th century “Kiowski” tent make it clear, why Ottoman handicraft inspired European courts until well into the 18th century.
