An old school Baltic woodcarving workshop, unusual and cavernous. Where good secrets are hidden, work is done by hand with careful strokes, and old fragments beg to be rediscovered by a good walk in the basement.
360-Degree Panorama: Old Town Wood Carving Workshop – Vilnius, Lithuania
I have a special place for Vilnius, Lithuania in my heart. For all the Baltics, for that matter. During my first trip to Europe in 1999, Lithuania was one of the places I visited by myself (while Audrey was in Estonia). In those days, Vilnius was dark and dilapidated — in a touching way. It was full of nooks and crannies, workshops and galleries, people painting and carving — and probably wondering where, as we always do, where life would take them.
A special thanks to the Bugailiskis family for a walk — circa 2008 — around their workshop at the top of Ausros Vartu.
