Watering can

 

1992-1996. Sarajevo is under siege. The citizens of Sarajevo are hungry and the food re- serves are at the minmum. Following the absence of farm land, people went to use public parks as their gardens. These areas had to be watered and the asset that was used to do this was this improvised watering can.
This watering can is made of a can for oil in which oil was delivered as humanitarian aid with a blue label „USA“. Beside that, the watering can is made of an extension with  a widening  that is punctured so it has many holes for evenly watering. This extension is made of sheet metal.
This exhibit is constructed by Vesna Bebek and it was doneted to the „Historijski
muzej BiH “ in January 2003.
