Turkish metal artwork dates as early as the 2nd and 3rd century BC in central Asia. Metal artwork reached its pinacle in the Ottoman Empire with the making of weaponry, such as swords, helmets, armour, dagger and knives. The decorative wooden objects found in excavations in Central Asia show that the Turkish art of woodcarving dates back to the distant past. Doors and window shutters, pulpits of mosques, Koran stands and lecterns display highly advanced woodcarving.
