At this personal painting exhibition, I demonstrate paintings on Lithuanian mythology. The works were painted in Samogitia (Žemaitija), close to Tverai, in the Lopaičiai ethno-mythology complex, which consists of Lopaičiai hill fort and shrine hill. They say that some elements of the ancient Lithuanian sacred place have remained on the shrine hill (shrine-oracle house): stones marked with signs and faces, and a sacred spring. There is a bowl-shaped stone and a barrow with a wreath of stones on the left bank of the rivulet Aitra, behind the rivulet, on the hill.
They say that it used to be a spiritual centre and the place of cult ceremonies of Samogitians. Huge round stones or their groups are located there, and the Sun and the Moon pits are still visible.
