The bookshop was decorated with original paintings by Antanas Kmieliauskas in 1979 while celebrating the 400th anniversary of the University. Frescoes cover almost the whole vaulted area. In eight segments symbolic figures of astronomy, medicine, botany, music, art, printing and other sciences and arts flourishing at Vilnius University are depicted. Above the pillars forming the vaults you can see portraits of famous University professors, alumni and patrons.
