GAIĶI (GAIKEN)

          Heading toward Saldus from the direction of Sabile, the Gaiķi Lutheran Church appears in the hilly landscape after 12 km. It was built in 1658, while the tower was added in 1684. This remote, outwardly plain house of worship is home to some respectable 17th century sacral works of art, including its altar wood carvings and the intarsia finishing of the pulpit. However, the most impressive objects are the organ loft and pew paintings depicting the apostles and allegoric figures. This is one of only a few such collections of Mannerist paintings in provincial Latvian churches.
