GREENACTIVE CULTURAL MUSEUM

Natural and cultural heritage estates and assets are all common heritage of whole humanity. Their protection, transfer to young generations; means a travel to the past and on the other hand it means understanding the past, recognizing and knowing it better. Collecting is mainly a passion, but also it is discipline, following, sacrificing and patience. Generally people who collect napkins, keys, toys in their childhood can be canalized to stamp, coin, archeological and ethnographic artifacts consciously.

The most sensibility needed in collecting is recorded and documented collecting, without any doubt. Within the scope of information and permission of these expert institutions these kind of collections may consist of archeological or any other special artifacts.

We are 20 years of archeological artifact collectors of the Istanbul Directorate of Archaeological Museum and we are continuing to contribute new artifacts to our world continues.

We are glad to share you important part of our artifacts from greenactive.com.tr web-site with you.

 

TOY WAGON

As it is given in archeology terminology; “Every object coming from soil tells you something, as long as you know how to understand it”.

This object may be an eye drop bottle, a vine or oil amphora, sometimes a gravestone, sometimes a relief, sometimes a simple artifact that can make life easier. Just try to understand it. Imagine that.

This toy wagon is one MASTERWORK of our collection.

What is the story of this object? What it tells us? Let’s try to understand it by looking the photograph.

The first one is as clean as the first day it is constructed. Such a clean object dates back to Roma and 4. century BS.

Lots of researcher finds this archeological object is obtained in such a clear way. Also, they are surprised how such a fragile part that produced from ceramics, soil and given to such a brat kid can stay safe and sound.

 

This toy is found in a region that an important civilization is governed. Probably it is taken from an necropolis and from a little sarcophagus. And again this little kid is never played with this toy most likely. So that this toy can stay so shining like that.

Raw material of this toy is earthenware. It is used in Roma ceramics, consisting of decorations that handled by baking in 800 centigrade. Terra sigilarta

Toy’s front part is shaped like a triangle and there is a hole opened there. There is double and triple hole that placed on the empty rectangle. Wheels that are moving the toy are in different sizes and front ones are smaller than the others. Details in a horse’s foot and neck are decorated with motifs belonging to these times and saddles and manes, features and harnesses are shown.

These unique horse form toys are produced in generations later and also similar ones were produced by toy makers in the neighborhood even up to the 1960’s and especially by Eyup toy makers.
