Basin for a Turkish Bath

White Marble basin for a hamam which is called "kurna" in Turkish language. Most of us have seen Hamam - "Turkish Bath" - in some movies or in thermal hotels. In Turkey, almost every city has a hamam. People usually goes there with their friends, family or childrens. They take a bath with the really hot water. Stream everywhere like as in the saunas, has a larger area unlike sauna.

People used these natural stones in the ancient times and still uses as wall & floor coverings, sinks, baths, sculptures, fireplaces.... Marble and travertine have never been old fashioned.
