For example, consider this 19th century French wishing well. During this time in history, the French enjoyed nature so much they would incorporate branches and trees in an everlasting form through design and décor –resulting in the creation of the style faux bois. Coming from the French word for false wood, faux bois was created through carved or cast stone, iron, or bronze crafted to look like wood. Our wishing well is a fine example of this style, and would lend a special feel to a modern day landscape.
