1. Our Girls in Büyükdere (three Neolithic Anatolian goddess figures from the Sadberk Hanim Museum outside of Istanbul), shared by Sid Reger from a visit to Turkey in 2006. I haven’t seen a detailed discussion of these three ladies, but I know they are from Hacilar.
Sadberk is a small private museum not to be missed–one lovely boat ride away from Istanbul. The museum itself has won architectural awards for blending Ottoman yeli style with a modern expansion.
