Lithuanian sutartines are unique archaic polyphonic songs. The image of women given in these songs is discussed. The symbolic style is difficult to understand for ethnographic purposes and requires investigation of symbols and allegories. Some important rites and responsibilities are outlined and the symbols (e.g. the wreath; summer snow and green birch bathing switches in winter; golden apple trees with silver apples) decoded. Parallelism is a sophisticated method to express facts and feelings. Special attention is given to rites of passage in old age, for they have never been singled out previously in Lithuania.
