Vilnius angels, the little adorable white statues, first appeared in the city in 2004, it was an initiative of the then Mayor of Vilnius and a creation of sculptor Vaidotas Ramoska.

Today they are truly a part of Vilnius aesthetic fabric.

Did you know that you can actually order a Vilnius angel like this to be made just for you?

Although the sculptor, like a true artist, seems to be hard to find…

…his website seems to be down, and his Facebook profile doesn’t divulge too many details… try and find him if you dare πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
