PD: Reproduction of ca. 1895 oil on canvas painting by Jean - Leon Gerome: b. 1824 d. 1904. French painter of historical, mythological and orientalist scenes. Whirling dervishes derived from their whirling dance as a rememberance to God. Probably originated in Turkey. Many dervishes are mendicant ascetics who have taken a vow of poverty, they dance and whirl to learn to be humble, and share their alms with other poor.
