The Artefacts of Palace of Grand Dukes of Lithuania/Architectural detail with the Vasa coat of arms

This unique item was found amid the rubble of the Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania. It is one of the most impressive stone architectural elements to have survived from the Palace of the Grand Dukes.
The stone detail decorated one of the palace portals which was reconstructed and installed most likely immediately after the fire of 1610. This Mannerist detail, probably created by North European masters, was probably the cornice or top part framing a door or window.
