Reflections of Riga


The Latvian signs are of a geometrical style, harsh in their form, separate in their placement, construcive, simple and clear in their composition, symmetrical. […] each sign should be perceived as a unity of definite movements in time and space, as a process because also in nature (Universe) everything is in movement.

It is a world outlook that unites in one whole the intuitive, imaginary and rational, analytically perceivable. This is knowledge which is written in signs and symbols and which opens up to us as a system, as a world outlook characteristic of the Balts – as patterns created by the Balts’ soul.
