Vilius Orvydas was a local sculptor. In the 1960s, when Soviet leader Khrushchev ordered the destruction of anti- Communist memorabilia all over Lithuania, Orvydas decided to rescue these items from abandoned homes and cemeteries. Many strange and unusual objects have found shelter in Orvydas' garden. Later he turned his smallholding into something quite extraordinary, incorporating various objects and pieces of his own along the way, around the ponds and in the wooden outhouses. This strange and unusual site requires a lot of time to wander around and contemplate. You can see many wooden carvings of Christ and the Virgin Mary, stones and boulders, a large Soviet missile and an abandoned Soviet tank. The garden is now looked after by members of Orvydas' family. Those with a passion for unusual Outsider Art have to visit this place. More information: www. meja. lt/ attractions/ orvydas. html PAGE 16 ORVYDAS FARMSTEAD
