About the Project:
Lycians are the oldest civilization in my city, and I always found their traces while my trekking. Many ancient ruins and these native trees among them fascinated me and I couldn't help creating my project with them. I had another plan, but since the training started, I was automatically examining these ancient trees. History, Nature, Life, and Art were intertwined for me during the time I worked on the project. This education and project enriched my life, now there are a few more trees waiting to be illustrated.
