Spiritual Journey of Aziz Mahmud Hudayi | Zeynep Elci
Aziz Mahmud Hudayi’s shrine is positioned at the center of the work. There is Topkapı Palace placed at the upper part . 8 different Sultans have ruled during Aziz Mahmud Hudayi and all lived in Topkapı palace therefore Topkapı Palace is placed in the work.
At the lower part, Uskudar ( a district in İstanbul ) is portrayed. Uskudar is the district where Aziz Mahmud Hudayi lived and died.
As for the story of the work, Aziz Mahmud Hudayi has taken the path of Sufism after he was assigned for some case during the time when he was Qadi. ( Muslim Judge ). The most interesting part of the work is his appearance as he wears Kaftan while selling liver at the bazaar. The irony is that wearing kaftan used to symbolize/represent the wealth at that time. By doing so, it is believed that he was defying his own nafs.
