Noah's Ark

This is a ship which was not destined to sail. Mijo Markovic had a wish to build an oak ship and sail with it to far Australia. Builders of this ship were from Zagreb and they were building it according to some English project. Unfortunately, just before the end of building, the Bosnian war broke out and the ship stayed unfinished. In 2008 in restaurant "Konoba" some gentleman was looking for me. It was Milo Grbic from Kiseljak and said he wanted to give me a ship that he bought from Mijo Markovic. I went to Modrac lake in Tuzla where this ship was moved from Kiseljak in 2000. Mijo had an intention of opening a restaurant in it. But in the end the ship was not destined to sail away and it was left there being ruined. I found it totally wrecked, rotten, with broken keels, but luckily I recognized a Noah's Ark in it.

I was sure the ship would never sail but what a miracle it would be if a ship had sailed for the first time in terrible floods in Semberija which happened here in 2010.

By listening to the chirping of birds, the burbling of the streams and churning of the water mill this is where a human relaxes eyes and soul and becomes wiser and more noble.
