Couple in Vilnius

 

Among the notable things in Vilnius, the capitol of Lithuania,  are the spires and the architecture, featured in the background of this painting.  Lithuania is nominally a Roman Catholic country, with 75% of the population purportedly members.  However the statistics show that half the population does not believe in the Christian deity.  I have portrayed the irony of this apparent contradiction through the unusual placement and distortion of the spires, which serve at once to unite and divide the couple.
