Catching up: Busy, Black & White, Spots

Another post with travel souvenirs:


At the Loftr Viking Museum on the Lofotes, there are all kinds of recreated Viking crafts on exhibit, like an amazing example of an embroidered tapestry. This is the detail of a particularly busy part.

Black & White

Street sigin in Kirkenes, Norway, both in Latin and Kyrillic letters as the town is so close to Russia (the closest border crossing is just a 15min drive away).

And also a true black & white image, or rather the pic of a such. At Síida, the Sami museum of Inari/Finland, they had a huge open-air area with traditional wood buildings of various regions and groups. Each came also with a detailed drawing of how the buildings were used, what kinds of items would've been inside and so on. This was of a shack or storage shed, I think, showing a sled and yokes for the reindeer who drew the sleds, snowshoes hanging on the wall, a spindle and various containers and items for food storage and transport.


In Alta/Norway, the northernmost rock carvings can be found. Here, a hunting scene is depicted, with bears, reindeer, people, and spots indicating animal's foot prints in the snow.
