ABSTRACT
It is known that the Turks beginning from the Old Turkic people from Central Asia often prefer to Express many events and concepts through the use of symbols instead of writing. These symbols generally don.t have a decorative purpose, instead they should be considered within the belief of the Turks before Islam. These motifs to be found in the region from Central Asia to East Europe belong to the Turkish tradition. Beside the various motifs and figures sword, dagger and arrow-arc motifs are often related with the way of death, the nobility, vocation or the heroic deeds of the person who died.
