The Monnaie de Paris (The Paris Mint) has given carte blanche to the artist Bina Baitel to create a fountain in the main courtyard of this historical establishment in the center of Paris. Echoing the current exhibition “Monnaies & Merveilles” (Currencies & Wonders) that presents the rituals of coins throughout the world, Bina Baitel imagined the Inflatable Wishing Fountain. The Fountain revisits an ancient European ritual that is still very much alive today, and which consists of throwing a coin into a water source to attract good fortune and make wishes come true.
