Lithuanian Museum of Ancient Beekeeping. Carved wooden figures of a man and a woman, gaze at a bucket on the ground between them as if waiting for it to do something wonderful by itself. The building behind them is probably supposed to represent their cottage. To the left appears to be a similar shine and maybe a totem pole, though it may be a street light.

Lithuanian Museum of Ancient Beekeeping. Carved wooden figure climbing the tree stump, which has a roof at the top, on which is a symbol of the Sun. There is an obvious pagan, spiritual significance to this and other carvings on site. Obviously the Sun was and is essential to the bees in the making of honey and honey in the form of mead has long been considered a holy drink amongst pagan folk.
