Oslo Cathedral, reflecting art (1)

On our last morning in Oslo, we visited the cathedral. Seems like it had been closed when we tried to go before. It was consecrated in 1697 and restored to its original baroque interior in 1950. Oslo Cathedral is the main church for the Church or Norway, Diocese of Oslo, as well as the parish church for downtown.

I donít know exactly what this was, but it was covered with mosaic tiles that reflected the church on one side and projected a light display on the wall from the other. There were also many handles on the sides (which will be the next picture). Very unusual, whatever it was.

Another part of the beautifully painted ceiling, posted earlier:

This really is different !! The reflections created look a bit like fire (hell???). At that ISO it must have been dark in there - well done ! V
