Digital collage featuring line drawing, historic and contemporary photographs imagining the social life of Palestine, depicting the Great Omari Mosque, Gaza.


This ancient site speaks to Gaza’s extensive history of religious interchange.


The Great Omari Mosque stood on the site of an ancient Philistine temple dedicated to the patron god of Gaza known as Marnas during the Byzantine period. The pagan temple was destroyed in 402AD by Christian Roman emperors. A Cathedral to John the Baptist was built on the site which was later incorporated into an Ummayad mosque. The mosque was repurposed as a Crusader church before reverting to a mosque since the 11th century.


This collage was created just 48 hours before the mosque was destroyed by an Israeli airstrike on 8th December 2023.
