(THE DOOR OF THE WIND) Wind and light pass through the door. At the other side of the dooe there are dreams and hopes. One’s heart is on the side of the light door. I have desired to visit Pamukkale for a long time. Thanks to colony that I could make it possible. I used a good quality travertine. I think my sculpture has a soft and beautiful expression. We worked in a friendly and favorable environment. It has been a very good experience for me.
