Battles of Durbe, Žalgiris and other battles of my childhood

For the children of the post-war generation, which I belong to, the favorite theme of games was war and fighting, where „good guys“ struggled with „bad guys“. My keen childhood interest in making toy soldiers has lasted to a respectable age. Actually, the plasticine toy soldiers have now become bronze heroes representing the most crucial military campaigns which decided the fate of our nation. An artwork, with no clear-cut beginning, can be dated from 1954 to 2010.
