  LOFTY CROSS

Look at this cross put among beautiful coniferous trees, just by parish church. Did you notice the same as me? The cross was very lofty. Its height was four (instead of, say, two) times larger than its width. I found such or similar proportions typical in Lithuania (for crosses not for people :-).

Very unique! Does it derive from strong pagan traditions of Lithuania?

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
