DETAILS:

“What made this the magical spot where people built their temple to Moon-God Sin 2000 years ago? Taken during the phase of the new moon, this extended-exposure photograph imagines their discovery of lunar divinity in the night sky. Excavations by treasure hunters are a common sight today at Sogmatar, an Arab village. Villagers use stones, sections or caves that belong to the Sogmatar Temple, which has been scarcely studied scientifically, to build their houses or, as seen in this photograph, use them as shelter for their animals.” (Sogmatar: It is scientifically established that this region of Tektek Mountains, dated back to 2nd century AD, was a cult center where people of Harran were worshiping the deities of moon and the planets during the period of the Kingdom of Abgar. At the Sogmatar cult site, there is a cave (Pognon Cave) for worshiping the Lunar God of Sin, a hill (Kutsal Tepe) on whose slope there are deity reliefs and inscriptions carved on the ground, a mausoleum with a plan of six squares and a round, a citadel and many rock-cut tombs on the main rock.)
