Pictures representing the Way of the Cross from the Seda church are a rare surviving example of rural painting, which attract the viewers by their sincerity, original compositions and a great many curious details. The author of the paintings is unknown, but it is presumed that it might have been Kazys Varnelis (1871–1945), the father of the remarkable American Lithuanian artist Kazys Varnelis (1917–2010). According to another oral tradition, the Way of the Cross was created by a woman who lived in Seda.
