“Nature is the art of God.”Dante Alighieri

Christianity is my cynosure.

Thank you so much for visiting. I truly appreciate that and feel honored.

I’m a child of the nature first. Then I’m Lithuanian. Kaunas is my native town. Lithuania is a tiny country in Europe with a population of slightly more than 3 million and is but my cradle. Nevada is another place where a big part of my heart rests. Almost 4 years I have admired the beauty of rural Nevada and lived in peace and harmony with its beauty. Lithuania and the Silver State are my most adorable places in the world. Also I spent about 1 year in China and traveled to many other countries.

Smiles,

Arvy :)))

Also let me introduce the BRISTLECONE INSPIRATIONhttp://www.bristleconeinspiration.com – the website where I’m involved in the process of creation and maintenance. There you can find my heart and soul. The below text of its title page should provide you an idea about the site. Thanks for visiting. :)

WELCOME to BRISTLECONE INSPIRATION. Our site is dedicated to, but not limited to sharing our love for those mesmerizing ancient trees known as bristlecone pines (Pinus longaeva). Bristlecones are among the oldest living organisms on Earth. One of their numbers, Prometheus, lived on a spectacular, windswept ridge near 11,000’ in the Great Basin of Nevada to an age exceeding 5,000 years! Bristlecones are not only old, but are among the most artistic of trees found anywhere. The harsh, high altitude mountain environments of the American West render them in the most exquisite of imaginative shapes. In their own environment nothing equals their beauty. They are truly spellbinding.
 
Other inspirations are derived from the untamed, wild mustangs of the Great Basin and sun-gold Baltic amber (Succinite) from the other side of the world. Mustangs are a legendary and graceful symbol of Western American freedom. Baltic amber is a symbol of warmth and beauty that ancient man revered. Amber, the fossilized resin of trees living 30-80 million years ago, emits such a glow of warmth that it is unequalled by any other gemstone. Still prized today, we are happy to offer a fine selection of “Sun Stones” for tasteful tastes.
 
Ancient trees, wild horses and golden amber! What better way to celebrate artistry of our world? On our site we offer you an esthetic experience. Welcome and enjoy your time viewing some of nature’s grace. And if you are thus inspired, as we are, a fine selection of art and gifts awaits your pleasure. Whether you’re interested in high quality photographs, dramatic oil paintings, fine sculptures, amber jewelry or gifts our artists are able to satisfy your most discriminating tastes. So please enter. Let your curiosity take you on an inspired journey. Also you are kindly invited to join our forums for Bristlecone Pines, Mustangs and Amber: enter the selected one or all of them. Enjoy!
 
May we suggest starting your journey by passing through the mysterious “Bristlecone Grove,” admiring the gallop and grace of “Wild Horses” and listening to the soft and subtle whisper of primeval "Amber.”
