This card comes from Snjezana. 🙂

The Sebilj is a pseudo-Moorish style wooden fountain (Sebil) in the centre of Baščaršija square in Sarajevo built by Mehmed-pasha Kukavica in 1753. It was relocated by Czech architect Alexander Vitek in 1891. It is also frequently called “the pigeon square.”

A multi-national collaborative public arts project created a life-size contemporary interpretation of the famous public fountain and landmark in Birmingham, utilising traditional Bosnian design and craft techniques and combined with modern digital technology.

There is a replica of Sarajevo’s Sebilj in Belgrade, Serbia, donated by the city of Sarajevo in 1989.
