EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases Nasreddin, a renowned Seljuq satirist from the 13th century. Known by various names such as Nasreddin Hodja, Mullah Nasruddin, or simply Nasreddin, he was born in Hortu Village in Sivrihisar, Eskisehir Province, Turkey. Considered not only a philosopher and wise man but also a Sufi practitioner, Nasreddin is remembered for his witty stories and amusing anecdotes. The image captures him riding on a donkey with great confidence and grace. His large turban and flowing beard add to his charismatic presence. This portrait beautifully depicts the essence of this folk legend who continues to captivate hearts even centuries after his time. Nasreddin's tales often carried moral lessons disguised within their humor. He used satire to challenge societal norms and shed light on human follies while encouraging critical thinking among his listeners. His wisdom transcended borders and generations, making him an influential figure across different cultures. Mary Evans has skillfully preserved this historical moment through her exquisite collection of prints. This particular photograph stands as a testament to the enduring legacy of Nasreddin's wit and wisdom that continues to inspire people worldwide.
