Photographer's Note

Perhaps a first for TE as I do not recall seeing prior uploads of Sundial Square let alone the statue atop the obelisk depicted here.

"The centrepiece of Sundial Square is the gilded and bronze-ornamented decorative sculpture Šaulys (Archer) by Stanislovas Kuzma. It is almost four metres high. The sculpture, often referred to as the Golden Boy, and the numbers 12, 3 and 6, indicating the hours and infused into the pavement of the square in a way unify the three symbols of Šiauliai: the sun, representing the Battle of the Sun that took place on the city grounds, the archer that the city's name derives from, and the time that has passed since the name of the city was mentioned for the first time (in 1236). It is the highest sundial in Lithuania."

Taken with a telephoto lens. I may have switched off auto and focused manually.

Here's a Craig's bird's eye drone shot of the entire square:
