Spending her time at home, Gintautė focused on her favourite hobby, embroidery. Having asked her friends on Instagram what represented the current situation to them, she embroidered thirty-three different quarantine stories on her old T-shirt. The stories depict different symbolic ideas, nostalgic things, and relevant issues such as toilet paper and respirators. When a follower asked her to embroider something magical, she decided to interpret this through an image of ‘a coronavirus in a glass jar’. The T-shirt was given to the museum by Gintautė Riabovaitė.
