In Progress2023y.November1130 d. - 2024y.April0428 d.

This exhibition presents just one artefact group from this rich collection – Gothic flat stove tiles. The stove tile collection dating to the mid-15th century consists of around 650 stove tiles and fragments thereof, decorated with at least 60 different narratives. Some of the stove tiles from the turn of the 15th–16th centuries are also included in our Gothic collection. The stove tiles are decorated with heraldic symbols, scenes from the lives of the saints, biblical scenes, mythological and everyday life narratives. A hypothetical mid-15th century stove was reconstructed based on this collection as part of the overall reconstruction of the Gothic period interiors at the National Museum – Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania.
