Candlestick

A bearded, long haired man with an austere face that is
depicted by a 12 cm bronze sculpture is the most famous
archeological find over the last 150 years, which made
Kernavė famous. The man’s nakedness is covered with a
cloth kerchief which is draped over his right hand and
turned over hi s hips. We see an object of unclear origins
in his elevated left hand that is decorated with wavy lines;
in his right hand, the man is also holding something,
however only a hole in the hand remains. There is a vertical
hole one and a half centimeters in diameter in the
sculpture. By the middle of the 19th century, they believed
that they’d found in Kernavė, a sculpture of the pagan
god of Thunder, Perkūnas.
