Asian studies in Lithuania

Date and time: 2017-06-10 - 2018-01-01

Location: 12 Liepų street, Klaipėda

On July 10 an exhibition of the Oriental art collection was opened in the Clock and Watch Museum (Department of Lithuanian Art Museum), which was donated by Nijolė, Leon and Linas Maskaliūnai (USA). This is an interesting, unique collection that presents the culture of South-East Asian countries. The accent of the exhibition is Bali’s calendar on a cloth called plintangan, which, according to the donor’s data, was created by the artist of the last king of the royal palace of Bali. Such a 210-day cycle calendar is still regulating rituals of Bali’s temples and Balinese.

The exhibition will be held until the end of this year.
