Have you heard of a church style called stave churches? They used to be common in Scandinavia, particularly in Norway, but now less than thirty remain. The churches vary in size and how elaborate their decoration is, but the two links I give here will show some of the variety.
I wondered if anyone here has been inside of one. See, I am thinking of what to do for my annual gingerbread project, and, having done several church styles before, thought this one would be cool. I’ve done a Gothic cathedral, a Russian cathedral,(onion domes and all!), and a model of a local Methodist church, as well as castles and houses.
If you look at some of the pictures it looks as if there is a gallery around the bottom story before entering the building itself. If you’ve been around one of these buildings, is that accurate?
Anyone who could give some pointers I’d sure appreciate it!
