Many would be familiar with the “whirling Dervish” images from Turkish travel sites. They are so fascinating and stunning that their image is often seen in Turkish art and ceramics. The Dervish are a member of a Muslim (specifically Sufi) religious order who have taken vows of poverty and austerity. Dervishes first appeared in the 12th century noted for their wild or ecstatic rituals especially dancing, whirling or howling dervishes according to the practice of their specific order.
