Title: Wooden Door of the Stave church at Urnes, Norway

Date: 1050-1070

Importance: This beautiful ornate wooden door demonstrates that by the 11th century scandinavia had become a christian society but some viking traditions remained such as the intertwining animals and forest in this church door. The strikingly refined abstract organic forms and sense of rhythm in most of the viking weaving designs is apparent.

Such talented craftsmen
