ABSTRACT
In the article on the basis of Lithuanian folklore, historical, ethnographical material and folklore material of other nations the image of the giant ox and its origin are discussed. A huge ox is depicted in some Lithuanian folktales and local legends. The image of the giant ox distinguishes for stereotypical forms, equivalent to international folklore and this show a common origin of this image. A certain perception of the time reflects in the image of the huge ox in Lithuanian folktales. Respect to ox in the Baltic culture could influence the formation of image of the giant ox in folklore. In folk tradition this image could be so long-lived because of some misty memories of wild oxen - auroch and wisent, as well.
