Nenous Thabit is a 17-year-old Iraqi boy who stands up to ISIS by making copies of the sculptures destroyed by the militant group.
In 2015, the terrorists destroyed the ancient statues of Nimrud, a city with 3000 years of history in Iraq.
Thabit challenges them with his clay creations: in the last 12 months he has carved 18 Assyrian statues and a mural. In addition, he also organizes seminars for children.
“They declared war on art and culture, so I decided to fight them with art,” he told CNN. “My dream is to become a renowned artist in Iraq, to make my country proud and show the world that my people love life and artistic heritage”.
