I love that animal head. The picture is okay, but I'm not sure that it conveys the delicacy of the carving. It's from the Viking Ship museum, which is devoted to four burial ships that were excavated in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. They were full of burial goods, so there is a great deal to be learned from them: there are tools and textiles and large objects like sleds and a gorgeously carven cart.

There's a neighborhood of Oslo where there are a lot of cultural museums: the Viking Ships, the Folk Museum (which is an outdoor museum that includes buildings relocated from around Norway), a maritime museum, a polar exploration museum, and so forth. I wish we had had more time there, but by the end of the trip I was starting to get a bad case of museum legs.
