Through changing colors of grassland during all years I try to present the portrait of human. The human being comes from the relation with nature. The existence of Lithuanian is influenced directly by the nature around him – Lithuanian nature. We are that, what the nature is around us.
The human, surrounded by grassland, finally, is absorbed by it and dissapear in it. The dissapearance in nature, the absorption were one of the death images in Baltic world outlook. But the death has never been decoupled from the birth… As after winter always coming spring – the rebirth. Cyclicality was especially important to ancient Lithuanian people, because that directly influenced their activity and their life. The cyclicality repeats in our papers, ornamentation, legends. I want to present this cycle of nature through grassland – from its “death“ in winter till “rebirth“.
The human being in nature in silence, in Dew festival is also in silence – the images of silence and nature in Lithuanian mythology and world outlook are often connected to one. Although, in nature there is no complete silence, however, to human, being in silence himself, being on his own in grassland and listening to its sounds, they finally dissapear and there is left complete silence. Certain Lithuanian meditation. Long ago, ancient Greeks, by being in silence, wanted to show to the companion about the eternity of God. And to Lithuanian, nature – is the direct relation with God“, – the author tells.
