Catching up: Busy, Black & White, Spots

Another post with travel souvenirs:

Busy

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.

Spots

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.
