30 May 2016

Luke Cornish (ELK) has sprayed a stencil piece of Kaheld al-Assad at Palmyra, Syria on a door at the 5000 year old site as a tribute to the man who was Palmyra's Curator of Antiquities for 50 years. Al Assad was was beheaded by ISIS in 2015 for refusing to disclose the location of valuable hidden artefacts.  

ELK traveled to Syria to take part in Boxers for Peace—Father Dave Smith's 2016 mission to bring some joy to the Syrian people—especially the young people—through sport. The project aims to build grassroots bonds between Syrians and Australians, and to give the world a glimpse of the real Syria through media coverage of this important mission. Father Dave Smith, Solomon Egberime, Jacob Najjar, Danny Sakis, Luke Cornish and Angela Smith participated in the project.
