The paper is conceived as an interpretation of events connected with the excavation of a little fountain from the 19 century, which can be seen today on the east side of the Republic Square in Zagreb. The story illustrates how depreciation of human work and life, caused by enormous inflation of money that characterized Yugoslav recent economy and, on the other side, the feeling of collective helplessness and faithlessness that rehabilitate the past as the place of hope, could give rise to irrational behavior with the characteristics of ritual creation.
