The stainless steel squirrel took up residence at the Sakura Alley in autumn 2020. Squirrels like this, from 15 to 30 cm tall, can be found throughout the city (Youth Park, Jotvingių gatvė (street), Žalioji gatvė, “Sakalėlio” primary school, Dainų slėnyje (Valley of Songs)). There will be more in the future. The sculptures are made by AB “Astra LT”, and on each is the laser-engraved symbol “Alytus-Myliu” (I Love Alytus), the year of production and a QR code linking to a Facebook description of how the squirrel statues came to be.
