Abstract: 73 drawings in religious buildings or places the author of which is an architect, painter Jonas Lukšė are introduced in the publication. He was born on July 8, 1940 in Žiurliai village (now it is in Anykščiai district, Traupis Elderate). In 1948 his family together with him were exiled to the Eastern Siberia. In 1957 he came back to Lithuania. Since 1964 he has been living in Kaunas. In 1971–1977 he studied in Vilnius Art Institute, Kaunas Evening Study Faculty where acquired the architect-painter specialty. For over 20 years he worked in Kaunas Cultural Monument Protection Inspectorate as an architectural heritage specialist. He created about 30 commemorative plaques and bas-reliefs of buildings or memorial sites. When retired he has been engaged in active promotion of cultural heritage. In consort with his colleague Vladimir A. Orlov they have released Kaunas fortress atlas. Also they have compiled a unique album Atmintis atgijusi paminkluose (Memory Revived in Monuments), which contains photos of almost all monuments capturing historical events of the Lithuanian partisans’ fighting against the Soviet regime, citizens’ deportations and ethnic revival. However, the iconographic study of cultural values has become the architect’s hobby. With a pencil and a sheet of paper in his hand he has taken up a thorough and in-depth inventory of the cultural heritage in Kaunas. One of the widest cycles of Luk a drawings is meant for Aleksotas and Auk toji Freda extending the left bank of Nemunas. Another cycle of author’s drawings is dedicated for items of cross-crafting and wooden artefacts. Almost all wooden crosses, roadside chapels, roofed poles, sculptures in Kaunas are present there. The largest in extent of Lukšė’s drawing cycles is meant for defensive objects of Kaunas Fortress. More than 100 drawings are accounted for this topic. [...]
