Sculpture "A reading man"
The sculpture entitled A Reading Man erected in 1983. The man of the old times, who is standing on a cobbled pavement, is not just an ordinary person he can read. Elderly residents of Siauliai may find his silhouette slightly familiar. A Reading Man has come from the old press of Siauliai: the same hand raised his eyeglasses, the same irony. Now it minds of the old times when Siauliai was a major centre of press, that it has a few printing shops, and that not far from place where the sculpture now stands well-known A. Jakavicius' bookshop was situated. The author of the sculpture is H. Orakauskas.
