Photographer's Note

The Frank Zappa Monument in Vilnius was erected in 1995, thanks to the initiative of Saulius Paukštys.
Paukštys first discovered Zappa thru bootleg recordings smuggled into Lithuania, while the country was still under Communist rule. Paukštys did meet Zappa in 1992 when he visited California.
In 1995 Paukštys was able to erect a bust for Zappa in capital of Lithuania. The bust was sculpted by Konstaninas Bogdanas. The fact that this statue was built was remarkable, since Zappa never visited Lithuania in his life and the country was never referenced once in his work.
