The history of woodcarving in Anatolia dates back to the Seljuk Empire. Seljuks used wood for architecture. In later years, wood was decorated and used to make carved ceilings, columns, doors, windows and cabinet doors.
The art of woodcarving reached its peak in the Ottoman Empire era. It appears in columns, window frames, doors, balconies, mosques and their specific designs, ceilings, covering for the Quran, dower chests and many other places.
Today, woodcarving still appears in different part of Anatolia without losing its traditional features. Many artifacts have survived to the present day. It is also possible to see many artifacts of carved wood in museums.
