The three-meter-high oak sculpture was built in 1972. The author of the sculpture is Stanislovas Bartkevičius. This is his diploma work. The sculpture was built in the center of Nida at the initiative of the then Neringa architect A. Zaviša.
The square, while undergoing renovation, had become a temporary shelter for the sculpture, a present to the town, while searching for the most-suitable place for it. Yet, the sculpture had not been moved out. After the central square of Nida was reconstructed in the spring of 2014, the sculpture stayed in it as a dominant part of the spacial composition.
The Curonian Spit, the unique creation of people and nature, located in the territory of two countries, namely, Lithuania and Russia, has been on a list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites since December 2000. To commemorate this occasion, memorial pyramids have erected. One - in Nida, in the beginning of Lotmiškio Street, and one in Juodkrantė.
The sculpture is dedicated to the pioneer of Lithuanian sung poetry, performer and songwriter Vytautas Kernagis. Nida has been chosen to commemorate the maestro as he was a symbol of Benai, Plaukiam Į Nidą, an opening festival for a summer season in Nida for many years. The sculptor has depicted life-size Kernagis with a guitar, his key attribute.
This piece was made of reinforced plastic at a request of Lithuanian Post to commemorate the history of the post office. The bas-relief portrays a horse-drawn mail-carriage and, at the same time, takes us back to the period between the 17th century and the first half of the 19th century, the times of the European postal route which passed through the Curonian Spit and connected it to the western Europe, central Europe and the Baltic countries.
The bronze sculpture “Rest,” which depicts a woman relaxing on the beach, is situated in the centre of Nida, in the square adjacent to the Neringa Art School (Pamario g. 4, Nida).

The 5-metre-high oak sculpture representing an armchair is situated near the lagoon in the Valley of Silence.

The sculpture of glued solid oak is situated nearby the café Senas Žvejas (Eng. Old Fisherman) on Nidos-Smiltynės pl. 8, Nida.

The sculpture was built in 1974 by Eduardas Jonušas.
