Urnes Knotwork by swandog Urnes Knotwork by swandog
The famous knotwork (carved around 1050AD) on the outer wall (once a doorway) of the Urnes Stavkirke in Sogn, which is the oldest of the stave churches in Norway. We stayed at the farm nextdoor, and I hope to go back there someday. :) (Photo taken by my hubby ~sayh.)

What release license is this image under? I am part of a small press publication, and we'd love to include this, but only if you license it CC so we could give you credit/link back to it.
