#dns-8:Stone Idol
(near Doliginovo/ Dauhinava village, Vilejka Region)
Stone idols or "baba" (symbolizing a female) are frequently found around Belarus. Their typical shape is that of a rounded cross. You can still see some stone baba's standing by the road. This particular figure of a woman and a child has crosses. Each cross consists off 4 crosses joined into one bigger cross. The crosses are located on the shoulders, heart and stomach area.

A week ago we (me ,my father and brother and my father cousin) returned from a visit in Belarus.
We visited Dolginovo, where my father was born and even found the family house (with the help of the locals).
My fathers' cousin (born in Ivya) found the son of a goy that hid him from the nazis for a night.
We also have been in the Jewish history museum in Minsk, I showed them your website for there use.
Im attaching some pics from the visit that I'll be happy if you please upload them to the website, thank you.
Shana tova to you and all your family.

As you can see it is primarily a farming community. There are a few newer homes and a lot of use of color - particularly the fences. We found just one small market.
