The house is actually quite enormous
Tom Wilson: It is indeed, Chris - evidently the Countess wanted to impress the locals smile

I am not a fan of this sort of thing, but I like this one, Tom
Tom Wilson: Yes, I thought it was rather charming - and, as it is obviously an untreated tree trunk it will obviously decay over time - creating new artworks as it goes smile
Good to see their heritage being restored Tom
Tom Wilson: They even managed to get money out of the Russian government in Soviet times to restore Trakai castle - a major symbol of their national identity!

A rather strange yet engaging sculpture.
Tom Wilson: Yes, I found it rather attractive.
It is a fine looking building, and what a strange sculpture, it is as thought the sculptor had forgotten what the lower half of a person looks like.
Tom Wilson: Probably done in a bit of a hurry on a standing tree trunk!
It looks like the sculptor got bored halfway down, Tom, and it was all going so well smile
Tom Wilson: Perhaps there's some symbolism in there that we don't get, Frank! smile
