Jonas Danauskas

JONAS DANAUSKAS (1854–1937), who was born near Rozalimas, learned the craft of religious carving from his father Ksaveras. He became a skilled sculptor, and made accurate reproductions of religious art. One of his main activities was designing and making altars. His early sculptures are similar to folk art, but his later works are closer to those created by professionals.
