Cross from Lithuania

Grey Cross from Lithuania 

A quick look at the different catholic cross on the hill of crosses will show you a variety of crosses in different shapes and sizes. Although the chrystian cross has a universal image, this grey cross has a particularly long base.

Lithuania was first mentioned in 1009 at pages of the medieval manuscript of the Germans known as the Annals of Quedlinburg. Today, Lithuania appears wherever pilgrims and crosses are mentioned. Not surprising considering the hundreds of thousands of crosses placed by international pilgrims on the hill of crosses.

The Lithuanian culture is known for cross crafting and aptly so considering that it has now become popular internationally for its oak crosses. While cross-making was a symbol for the world tree of the pagans, it has now become a symbol of Catholicism in Lithuania.
