Circumcision Room

In 1640 Sultan Ibrahim I added the Circumcision Room (Sunnet Odas?), a summer kiosk (Yazlik Oda) dedicated to the circumcision of young princes, which is a primary rite of passage in Islam. Its interior and exterior are decorated with a mixed collection of rare recycled tiles such as the blue tiles with flower motifs at the exterior. The most important of these are the blue and white tile panels influenced by far-eastern ceramics on the chamber facade, dated 1529. These once embellished ceremonial buildings of Sultan Suleiman I, such as the building of the Council Hall and the Inner Treasury (both in the Second Courtyard) and the Throne Room (in the Third Courtyard). They were moved here out of nostalgia and reverence for the golden age of his reign. These tiles then served as prototypes for the decoration of the Yerevan and Baghdad kiosks. The room itself is symmetrically proportioned and relatively spacious for the palace, with windows, each with a small fountain. The windows above contain some stained-glass panels. On the right side of the entrance stands a fireplace with a gilded hood. Sultan Ibrahim also built the arcaded roof around the Chamber of the Holy Mantle and the upper terrace between this room and the Baghdad kiosk.
The royal architect Hasan Aga under Sultan Murat IV constructed during 1635-1636 the Yerevan Kiosk (Revan Kosku) and in 1638-1639 the Baghdad Kiosk (Bagdat Kosku) to celebrate the Ottoman victories at Yerevan and Baghdad. Both contain most of their original decoration, with projecting eaves, a central dome and interior with recessed cupboards and woodwork with inlaid nacre tesserae. Both are based on the classical four-iwan plan with sofas filling the rectangular bays.




This is the ceiling of the Heaven Room in the Little Castle at Bolsover. This room was one of two Closets adjoining the Bedroom of Sir William Cavendish. The decoration of the two Closets convey very different messages. This ceiling was painted in 1619 and restored in the 1970's. It depicts Christ Ascending into Heaven. This room may have been decorated to symbolise divine love. The other Closet called Elysium symbolising physical love.

The sheet music apparently relates to an English Folk Song about Robin Hood. The main seat of this branch of the Cavendish family (that became known as the Cavendish-Bentinck family) is Welbeck Abbey in the Dukeries of Nottinghamshire. Welbeck was also within the ancient bounds of the Royal Forest of Sherwood. One of the responsibilities of the owners of Welbeck Abbey was to oversee Sherwood Forest for the Monarch. Sir William Cavendish was often flattered by being referred to as the Goodly Oak of Sherwood.

In the 17th Century a 'closet' did not mean a cupboard or wardrobe or even a euphemism for a toilet. It was a small room where you could retire for private conversation, card and board games and dressing. I can envisage that those that might have been invited into either Closet would vary ~ in view of the decorative theme.

Bedchambers in Country Houses and Royal Palaces in this period were much more public spaces than they are now. A landowner of Sir William Cavendish's status might have received visitors in his bedchamber whilst his outer garments were put on.
