Made of white paste, white slip and transparent glaze, fifteen rectangular tiles form a map of Turkey. At the upper edge between two halved representations of the Turkish flag is a portrait of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk enclosed in a round medallion. In the lower corner in Ottoman script, "Gazi Hazretlerine Yadigar" (A memento for the Exalted Ghazi), the date 1929 and the signature "Kütahi Kamil Efendi" can be seen. Explanations on the map are written in Ottoman Turkish. The lower edge of the panel is decorated with a border of palmette and leaf motifs.
