Homestead of folk artist Rimantė Butkuvė
Folk artist Rimantė Butkuvė was born in Kėdainiai district, near the Apylaukis manor, grew up and studied in Kaunas. While studying at school, she was interested in poetry, theater, painting, and loved books.
Rimantė started her career as a carver by accident. The union of folk artists asked to restore the cross. Rimantė bought a wood carving with an interesting composition from a folk craftsman: the Virgin Mary and an angel stumbling in prayer at a cross surrounded by a fence. That angel caught Rimante's attention and she decided to carve it herself. Since then, wooden angels have "settled" in the heart and hands of Rimantė Butkuvė.
