Motifs, texts and mythic incantations come from Eugenija Šimkūnaitė’s books “Girios medeliai, žali žaliuonėliai” (Trees of the Forest, the Green Ones), “Indraja – Saulės duktė” (“Indraja, the Daughter of the Sun), and “Gyvačių karalystė” (The Kingdom of Snakes). Dr Eugenija Šimkūnaitė was a famous pharmacist, ethnographer and herbalist, real sorcerer, she dedicated her entire life to the beauty and wisdom of Nature.
