description
The world composed of fragments of a smashed jug is an excellent depiction of the political situation at the end of the 1980s and the beginning of the 1990s, particularly in the countries of South and East Europe. This motif, shown on the poster for International Museum Day 1991, is particularly illustrative of Croatia. At that time the war was raging, carrying off many lives, systematically destroying the heritage and obliterating history.

The inspiration for this poster was the vernacular proverb: “A jug can go to the well until it breaks”.
