Decorative picture of three dervishes dancers. Their whirling dance, also known as the sema, is a serious religious ritual performed by Muslim priests in a prayer trance to Allah of this Turkish sect. The religious music for the dance of the dervishes was given by a large orchestra. The dance is performed in three parts. The dervishes turn independently around their own axis as well as around the other dervishes, representing the earth turning around the sun or God / Allah. They did this always in the same direction.
Taken from a very rare travel book by Anthonius Gonsales, "Hierusalemsche Reyse". The book describes his pilgrimage from Antwerp to Jerusalem and back. Giving a detailed illustrated account of the holy places, Egypt, Syria and indigenous flora and fauna.
Only a few copies of the book are known.
