Lithuanian mythology. Archaic compositions

 

“Archaic compositions”

Archaic compositions are ornamental – informational structures by aesthetic and artistic form rendering the Lithuanian (Baltic) model of world structure which in my belief is adequate to the conception of the world structure of other nations. The roots of ornamental symbolism date back to the distant cultural past of our nation. I believe the ornaments which reached the present are least of all affected and transformed by the technological civilization of nowadays. In Lithuanian ornaments wonderful layers of the archetypal consciousness of the nation are revealed.
