Kalvaitis the celestial Smith lives by the water’s edge at the end of the world where he hammers out a new sun every morning. In 1431, the missionary Jerome of Prague complained that the Lithuanians not only worshipped the sun but also an exceptionally large hammer, which helped rescue the sun from imprisonment. Among the sacred treasures forged by Kalvaitis is Ausrine’s Crown.
