A wishing well is a term from European folklore to describe wells where it was thought that any spoken wish would be granted. I constructed wishing well that is alike a bathtub and is suitable for only small children. Many cultures share a tradition of washing a dead body before buried. This work is an emblematic memorial of thousands of unknown children, the most vulnerable victims of intensified bombings in Syria and other areas.
