In the 7th May 1904 issue of the French caricature magazine “L‘Assiette au Beurre”, the Czech artist Frantisek Kupka drew a caricature titled “Dieu Turc” (“Turkish God”). The black-faced Muslim warrior stands pugnaciously on a mountain of decapitated heads. In the sky, an allusion is made on the ḥūr al-ʿayn, the virgins of Paradise waiting for the Muslim martyr. The warrior's shield represents the Ottoman flag. The man symbolizes ʿAbd al-Ḥamīd I, a reference to the Hamidian massacres, 1894–1896.
