Pašvinė stone with a bowl

Other natural objects

In 2017, a stone with a plate-shaped bowl was included into the Register of Immovable Cultural Values of the Republic of Lithuania. It is a boulder tooled by humans, a pink large-grain granite, in the shape of an irregular cylinder, about 1.1 m in diameter and up to 0.45 in height. On the sides, the 3-5 cm wide and 2 cm deep grooves have been sculpted throughout the visible height of the stone. In the middle of the upper plane there is a bowl with a flat bottom, 36-37 cm in diameter and 7-8 cm in depth. Stones with flat-bottomed bowls are attributed to the ritual stones of Curonians, one of the Baltic tribes.
