Yarımca-Bağtepe / Sarıdere Mosaic

Yarımca-Bağtepe / Sarıdere Mosaic. 5th century AD. Found at the village of Bağtepe in Yavuzeli sub-province it was already damaged by robbers. In 2005 it was brought to the museum. It covered the corridor of a village church. It is composed of wild and domestic animal figures, pasturing and running on the grass. Unusual is that it contains both land and water animals, with geometrical figures around them all. The notice mentions combining animals and geometrical figures is also seen in the 524 BC Pazyryk Carpet, which I find interesting, but far-fetched in its suggestion of there being a connection.
