Description

Pink granite equestrian statue, where Vytautas' figure blends into a horse figure, this way the sculptor emphasizes Vytautas's abilities to fight and desire to act. The granite for the statue was brought from the areas which belonged to Lithuania during the rule of Vytautas the Great - Ukraine. The statue weighs nearly thirty tons.
