Abstract:

We can come across the ibex/chamois as a petroghlyphical image (rock art) in most parts of the continents of Europe and Asia. The ibex/chamois as a symbol can also be seen on the top of flagstaff, the buckles, horse equipments, monuments as a stamp, inscriptions and tablets, carpets and rugs as a theme. As a matter of fact, we also know that the khan's family stamp in the K k Turks is ibex/chamois. The ibex/chamois has been mentioned in legends at the same time. This element which the Turks attach such an importance to should have a background without question. All materials which we determined and which are remarkable to reveal this background have been scanned. Consequently, it is thought that the ibex/chamois may be related to Tureyis Epic of the Turks taking place in Chinese sources.
