This roofed pole was unveiled in July 2013, in Pušalotas central Square. It is supposed that the name of this village is derived from the word "pine". Once the rye reaping girl was attacked by a snake and only the appearance of the Mother of God saved her from a disaster. Later, after cutting at the point grown pines, a wooden chapel was built and the area became known as Pušalotas. According to the legend scene, a sculptor from Panevėžys Dalius Dirsė created this roofed pole, which was consecrated by a priest Kazimieras Kęstutis Gurklys.
