Prarasta siela su Žasiu (Lost Soul with a Goose)

12" x 18" white charcoal on black paper The celebration of departed souls is called " Velines " in Lithuania. They believe that the spirit of the deceased return to the houses in which they lived. My piece entitled " Lost Soul with Goose " is in response to my childhood question of how do the spirits find their way back if they get lost ? Those from Lithuania know that for ages there always has been a healthy population of geese. And geese are gifted navigators . A soul can be brought back home with the help of a goose. Well, that's how my father would explain it to me .
