Giant mural tells Palestine's 3,500-year-old history

NABLUS, WEST BANK - DECEMBER 2: The giant mural painted by 25 Palestinian artists on the wall of Nablus Stadium, is seen on December 2, 2013 in the West Bank city of Nablus. The project, the 1,000-square-meter mural, dubbed 'Huna Canaan' ('Here is Canaan'), isn't just a painting. Rather, it's an illustration of more than 3,500 years of Palestinian history. The mural begins with a scene of a Canaanite woman working on the land. 'Canaan' is the oldest name associated with the land of Palestine. Other scenes portray the 'Nakba' (the dispossession of the Palestinians and concurrent establishment of Israel), the Intifada and the occupation of the holy city of Al-Quds (Jerusalem), along with a painting dedicated to late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat. The mural ends with a painting in which Israel's notorious separation barrier is destroyed as a young Palestinian man passes through it while waving a Palestinian flag a reference to the end of the Israeli occupation and the establishment of an independent Palestine.
