The statue created by Ayse Aytac Kati was erected at the back of a pond in a park in Antalya as a tribute to Turkan Saylan.

Turkan Saylan was born in Istanbul in 1935. She was graduated from Istanbul University's medical faculty in 1963.
She specialised in dermatological and veneral diseases and also took further training in Britain with a scholarship from teh British Culture Delegation. She became a professor in 1977.
She started working on leprosy in 1976, founding the Foundation for Fighting against Leprosy in 1976.
She formed the Istanbul medical faculty leprosy research and implementation centre, of which she was director between 1981 and 2001.
In 1989, she was founder of a charitable foundation called "Association for the Support of Contemporary Living" and served as its president for a long time. The association enabled many children and young people to access education.
She was a member of the Council for Higher Education from 2001 to 2007, and a member of the Prime Ministerial Human Rights Advisory Board and the Istanbul Province Human Rights Board from 2003 to 2004.

She was the recipient of many national and international awards, one of them the Gandhi award for her work on leprosy. (EÖ/AG)

Clearly a fascinating and dedicated person!
For once I think I prefer the colour version (V2) which seems to have a touch more depth. But I might change my mind later Smile

I'll go with colour... This is a remarkable work, a very humane, engaging, warm character growing out of the cold hard stone.

Colour for me, not just because it is colour but because it has more intensity and depth.

How wonderful to see a remarkable woman celebrated in a sculpture. Sadly we don't see that much in the UK.
