Excuse, it's more Lithuanian than Vilnius local custom tip. I will transfer it to my Lithuania page soon.

Driving around Lithuania I found many wooden statues similar to this one on my picture. This one was located at the base of Vilnius TV tower to commemorate victims of Soviet aggression on 13th January 1990. Well, the statues were usually high and thin with a kind of roof topped by the holy cross above which made them a kind of small chapels. They looked exactly on right place when were put by wooden churches.
