We felt like those monks, spending hours to create a sand mandala, and after all destroying everything. But it was really amazing experience! My friend artist Jolita Vaitkute ( click here to follow her on facebook ) came up with this idea to say goodbye to our currency litas, as Lithuania entered the eurozone. So we collaborated with her and two other amazing photographers - Austeja Lapenaite and Paulius Zaborskis. The process of making this 1 litas banknote with portrait of Lithuanian writer Zemaite was really fun! We used caraway seeds, peas, bread, garlic and other Lithuanian food products.
Now we're looking forward to finding supporters and making other banknotes of litas! :)
