Gaza hero medal
ميداليّة بطل غزة
Who or what can save life in Gaza? The harsh reality feeds the longing for superheroes; someone with the superpower to fight for safety, freedom and a fair standard of living. This key ring introduces a ‘Gaza-hero’.
Inspired by the comic-book hero Spiderman, the figure has a keffiyeh pattern instead of Spiderman’s spider web — ready to activate your own imagination to liberate Gaza.
