Lithuania is home to a shrine and a pilgrimage site known as the “Hill of Crosses”.
The hill is about 12 kilometers north of Šiauliai, in the northern part of the country, is now home to an “uncountable” number of crosses of all styles and materials.
In most cases, the figure of Christ — usually seated, his head resting on his hand, in a pose known as the “pensive Christ” — came from Lithuania.
