Eero/S. Šalkauskio St., Šiauliai
The focal object of Sundial Square is an almost four-meter-high decorative statue "Šaulys" (The Archer) by Stanislovas Kuzma decorated with gilded bronze. The statue depicts a boy standing on a ball at a height of 18 meters in the pose of just having shot an arrow from the arch. The statue, which is often referred to as "the gilded boy", as well as the numbers 12, 3 and 6 stamped into the pavement of the square connect three symbols of Šiauliai: the Sun, commemorating the Battle of the Sun that took place in the territory of the city, the Archer, from which the name of the city originated, and Time that has passed since the day when the name of the city was mentioned for the first time (in 1236). It is the highest sundial in Lithuania.
