Our paintings on Sufis and Mystics portray Sufis in a physically active form of meditation. Through this customary dance which is popularly termed as " Sufi Whirling" , dervishes aim to reach the source of ultimate perfection or Kemal. In this dance, the dervish abandons his ego or nafs and while listening to the music, focuses his attention on God. While he centers his attention on God, the source of Kemal, he spins his body around in repetitive circles which is known as Tanoura dance or Sufi Whirling. This dance is a metaphorical representation of the planets in the solar system orbiting around the Sun.
