  LOFTY MONUMENT TO LITHUANIAN PRIEST
by matcrazy1
 
 

Look at this column, topped by an angel statue, put among beautiful coniferous trees by Rudamina parish church. It was a monument to Lithuanian priest and fighter for Lithuanian independence Antanas Milukas (1871 - 1943).

There were quite many such wooden and lofty columns with a sculpture or a statue put on a top around Lithuania. They were put to commemorate someone or something which was usually explained on accompanied plaques (usually in Lithuanian but sometimes in Latin or Polish language as well).

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
