Urnes Stavkirke Plate

This is my church plate for 2009.  It's from the Sogn og Fjordane area on the west side of Norway.  I paint a new plate every year, this being the 34th.

The church was built in the early 1100's, some of the parts used were from a previous church dated back to the 1050's.  I dressed up the border more than would typically be seen from that area.  I used elements from the decoration on the altar and walls in the border design.

Price: $8.00
