Hill of Songs
"Dainų kalnelis" (Hill of Songs)
(wooden sculptures, 1998)
Wooden sculptures "Dainų kalnelis" (Hill of Songs) were created during the Baltic States Symposium held in Birštonas in 1998. Works of art, created using themes from folk songs, were sculpted by Latvian, Polish and Lithuanian artists. For Lithuanians a song is a form of meditation, treatment, art and also a symbol of Homeland. Works of folk art are radiant with pride, serenity, and respect for work, people, song, freedom, bird and the sun.
The hill of songs is an exceptional place, because there is not a single sculpture built on this...
