Sculpture "Kaminkrėtys" ("Chimney-sweep")

Chimneysweeps used to mean extraordinary luck to those who happened to catch a glimpse of them. The belief that touching even a button of a chimney Sweep will bring you the same amount of luck followed suit. Thus, the sculptor wanted to give life to the superstition by creating a sculpture of a chimneysweep for all to see all year round. However, as there is no way of touching the sculpture (it being on a roof), a button of the chimneysweep is embedded inside the wall of the building for those who wish to take luck into their own hands. (Author of the sculpture Klaudijus Pūdymas)
