Lithuanian Community Mural
The Lithuanian Community got more than one art project to celebrate that summer. Lithuanian wood carver Aurimas Šimkus carved a 10-foot-tall totem representing “Egle — Queen of the Snakes,” a beloved folk tale in Lithuania, on site at Lauritzen Gardens. The sculpture even appears in the mural, giving even more reason for officials from our Sister City in Šiauliai to visit for the unveiling of both works of art.
