Beauty of our home, bird songs in the dawn, blue lakes - the memories inspire to create. Sparrow symbolises modesty. Dove bears love, human soul and the world, but the seagull is the symbol of freedom and life journey. My svilpaunieks embodies all of these values because they have a special meaning to my Latvia, too

I'm a birdie from Jūrmala - the city by the sea. You would think that the seagulls are the only birds roaming the place, however looking closer in the shrubs and bushes, you will notice abundance of many little birds - and I'm one of them.

Latvians see birds as messengers. A lark calls to weddings, a tomtit brings news from soldiers, a nightingale wakes the ploughmen in spring mornings, an oriole is the herald of rain but a corncrake foresees rye harvest. Let it bring the message you're expecting!

Sky is where a bird belongs. When you look up and see its silhouette, it feels like its swimming in an ocean of clouds. Our bird is made of clay extracted from the ground and burnt in the fire. In this way 4 elements meet in a charm and the air travelling through it creates the sound of life.
