Marija Gimbutas at Raganu Kalnas in Juodkrantė, LithuaniaOur folk art is distinctive – yet has similarities to other cultures through symbols, many of which were passed on from prehistoric times. They decorate pottery, textiles, and wood-carving and are a key to our past.

Learn about world renowned anthropologist and archeologist Marija Gimbutas, professor at Harvard and UCLA, who unlocked those symbols, expanded knowledge about our prehistory, and introduced it to the world. Find out why this is the year of Marija Gimbutas in Lithuania.
