Carvings

These are from museums in Oslo.

The animal-head (a dragon? something about the nostrils seems so) is knock-out. I'm not sure if that's one I've seen before (on a bookcover) or if there are many such. One could study the carving for ages, hey? Fascinating - it seems to speak so much of the mind(s) that planned it, and executed it.

The carving in the second photo seems so fresh from the carver's chisel, too! Wow - great museums!
