To celebrate the beginning of Lithuania‘s Presidency of the EU Council traveling  exhibition “Lithuania in the Mail Parcel“ has opened on July 10 at the European Economic and Social Committee in Brussels. This exhibition presents Lithuania’s natural and cultural heritage inscribed into UNESCO international lists or inventories.

At the opening EESC vice-president Jane Morrice and  UNESCO Lithuanian National Committee Secretariat representative Mr. Arūnas Mark made welcoming remarks.

The creative team leader, art historian dr. Giedrė Jankevičiūtė presented the concept of the exhibition.
The exhibition is created on the principle of traveling curiosity rooms, often called Studiolo or Wunderkammer,  that emerged in Europe during the Renaissance and became the prototypes of contemporary museums.

10 wooden containers showcase Lithuania’s UNESCO heritage in an innovative and attractive way. The Old Town of Vilnius is represented via pop-up image, 3D hologram shows an object of cross-crafting, audio information allows to understand the structure of Lithuanian multipart songs  sutartinės.  The characteristic natural samples of Žuvintas Biosphere Reserve reflect the first nature reserve of Lithuania. The items depicting the Baltic Way - the Human Chain linking three Baltic States in their drive for Freedom,  and documents of Radzwill’s Archives and Niasvizh Library Collection represent National Memory of the World Register.

The exhibition in EESC will be on display until August 20. It will be also exhibited at the European Parliament Chamber in Brussels on December 2-6.
