Artist's Description

The government destroys a city laying above ancient graves in Luxor Egypt.

“A 50-year-old battle to evict squatters from one of Egypt`s most renowned archaeological sites, the West Bank of Luxor, was finally settled when authorities began demolitions.
The fate of Qurna`s 10,000 residents was sealed when authorities gave the demolition order for the mud-brick houses erected over ancient Egyptian tombs on the Theban hills that had become a tourist attraction in their own right.”

The people of Qurna are not happy with the move since where they lived was a tourist attraction and that is how many families made their living… about 95% of the people i talked to were not happy with the move…

I’ll be posting more pictures of the inside of their old homes (the destruction of their houses started in 12-2006).
