a farewell to litai

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.
