On wells

Now, some of the more observant readers have probably noticed from the previous pages that this well is getting larger in diameter as it gets deeper.

THAT is not natural and it's not a draughtman mistake, it's just one of the wonderous things that link this place to the supernatural it inhabits. Last pannel is very explicit on the size issue.

Also in the last pannel one gets to see the bottom of the well and notices there is a cross. That cross on which Mihai is being pinned down does exist in most wells. It's made of large wooden beams and they are there as structural support and also to make sure the walls of the well as it's being built are round and vertical. How do these wooden beams not rot? Because they are submerged in water all the time thus they are preserved.

Also when a new well is made, water inside it it's murky, muddy and cannot be used for drinking, that is why in a newly dug well certain purifyling salts and rocks are being put in to help speed up the purifying process. And after a month the water is ready to be used and drunk.

A bit of inside knowledge on how wells are constructed and why this one is particular.
