Gediminas builds a castle of Vilnius

Bookmark
The legend about the establishment
of Vilnius city states
that the Grand Duke
of Lithuania, Gediminas,
was hunting in the forest
near the Valley of Šventaragis.
Tired after the successful day's hunt,
the Grand Duke settled
in nearby for the night.
He fell asleep
and began to dream of a huge Iron Wolf
that was standing on the top of the hill
and the sound of hundreds
of other wolves inside it
filled all of the surrounding
fields and woods.
Upon the awakening,
the Duke's native priest Lizdeika
explained the meaning of the dream - that
a city will be established at this spot
and the glory of it
shall echo throughout the world as if the mighty sound heard in the dream.
Accordingly in the site
where two rivers meet
the mound was tipped
and the castle was built.

Description

Authentic souvenir from Vilnius.
Wood and felt combined as a bookmarker.

With a book, one can escape easily, without running away, just as with music. Where ever You are. In between of light pages awaiting bookmark is like a wood-scented ticket to some hidden place, to some slower time. Your fingertips follow it and suddenly You appear somewhere else, reading under a tree on a hill high above the sinking valleys or maybe somewhere in the lowlands, among verdure close to a sage. Where is safe. Where ever You want it to be.
