The bronze sculpture reflects the mood of one of the best-known existentialists of the 20th century, Jean-Paul Sartre, during his visit to Neringa. He arrived here in July 1965 with the writer Simone de Beauvoir. The mood was captured by the photographer Antanas Sutkus, who was accompanying them. The figure of the wandering man, struggling with the sand and the wind of the dunes of Neringa, has become an inseparable as well as worldwide-recognised image of Sartre himself. The reason to initiate the creation of this sculpture stems from the philosopher’s words that perfectly describe the landscape of the Curonian Spit, “I feel like standing at the gate of Paradise” and “For the first time, the clouds are under my feet.” The sculpture stands on the Parnidis Dune. It was built on 21 June 2018 by Klaudijus Pūdymas.
