Stasys Stasiunas is well known in Panevezys, where he teaches art. These pastels are a memorial to his beautiful wife, who died that year of cancer. Stasiunas sees us continuing on after death in his dark pastels framed in black. Those half buried houses we see are tombstones, represented as houses where the dead live on, if not in themselves, at least in us who survive them.
