Sebilj...The Sebilj...PEACE IN THE AIR

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.

Sebilj ili Sebil je arapska riječ u značenju "put", ali kao termin označava dobrotvornu, vrlo staru instituciju, fontanu posebnog oblika na trgovima, na kojoj je sebiljdžija tasom zahvatao vodu iz korita i besplatno napajao žedne. Sebilj na Baščaršiji je jedini objekat te vrste u Sarajevu, izgrađen 1891. godine, po nacrtu češkog arhitekte Aleksandra Viteka. Sebilj, kojeg je podigao 1754. godine bosanski vezir Mehmed-paša Kukavica, izgorio je u požaru 1852. godine, a nalazio se nešto niže od današnjeg.
