These are some beautiful images of wood-carving I took when we were in Norway last June. The one above is from the door of the stave church at Holmenkollen (near Oslo) and below is one of the stunning doors at the stave church at the Norsk Folkmuseum (Oslo). This is a 13th century church which was incorporated into the Museum in 1907. Inside, it was so dark and mystical, and yet inviting too.
I still only have a couple of our holiday photos actually printed and framed! There's so many that I love and which bring back such happy memories but shoving them into a photo album as I have done after so many trips before seems kind of pointless and boring. What do you usually do with your holiday snaps?
I have just borrowed from our local library The Silbury Treasure: The Great Goddess Rediscovered by Michael Dames and The Living Goddesses by Marija Gimbutas. Flicking through the former before bed last night, they both promise to be very interesting. Have you read them? Do you have any favourite books on the Neolithic period or Goddess worship?
