Turkish Wrestler (2 of 4)

A Turkish wrestler, Ryza Bey, lifts enormous dumbells whilst another strongman colleague sits on his shoulders. A series of cards (2 of 4) depicting a Turkish wrestler, juggler, weightlifter, strongman and entertainer. Yagli gures (Turkish wrestling) is the Turkish national sport. It is commonly known as oil wrestling (sometimes as grease wrestling) because the wrestlers douse themselves with olive oil. It is related to Uzbek Kurash, Tuvan Khuresh and to Tatar Koras. The wrestlers, known as pehlivan (from Persian meaning "hero" or "champion") wear a type of hand-stitched lederhosen called kisbet (sometimes kispet), which were traditionally made of water buffalo hide, but now also of calf leather.
