It was indeed in the street, just outside the studio where the artist symposium is taking place. It was part of the opening, called 'Tanora'.

You can find an explanation here: [link]
It is very folkloric here but obviously the origin is in the Mevlevi Dervishes, and you being in Turkey you know about the Mevlana and so on.

Thank you!
Yes they are rather colourful, very different from the White the Dervishes wear in Turkey.
