An interesting early attempt to make people look like individuals...
Tom Wilson: It's actually quite a modern piece - the artist was born in 1924
This is very nice Tom.
Tom Wilson: I'd have been happy to take it away, Frank smile

Elizabeth is right - they all look slightly different. An unusual picture
Tom Wilson: Yes, it's actually a modern piece.

They lead a serious life Tom..
Tom Wilson: Perhaps they are worrying about remembering the words smile

This is very well done and also I am with Elizabeth here. I imagine they could all sing beautifully
Tom Wilson: Yes, a lovely piece - but it's modern, not early.
How splendid, Tom. I have sung in various choral groups throughout my life and find this very pleasing to the eye.
Tom Wilson: He seems to have been quite an accomplished artist and currently 95 I think smile

Like the famous Russian dolls in shape.
Tom Wilson: They do remind one of that!
I am wondering how old this actually is Tom. There is something very modern about it to my untutored eye
Tom Wilson: Yes, it is modern, Bill - your eye is right. Balcikonis was born in 1924. I guess the dress and the style has fooled some smile However, I've seen similarly dressed folk groups on Lithuanian TV.
Interesting........you threw me when I read how recent it was made!
Tom Wilson: Very deceptive, isn't it?
It looks so like batik.
they blend together very well Tom... the patterns are different on their dresses are different but at first glance they look the same....petersmile

It is actually batik on linen, created in 1968. The title is "Sutartine" (an ancient multi-part song).
