New Shrines - Xanke, Iraqi Kurdistan (2015)

New Shrines - Xanke, Iraqi Kurdistan (2015)

Three new shrines (two of the three pictured here) had just been completed in the Yezidi's important collection of shrines - Memeshivan - outside of the Yezidi town of Xanke (or Xanik). To my mind their construction is a proud and defiant response to IS's distruction of many shrines in the Sinjar.
