  17. I enjoyed it very much to scroll down and see so many beautiful stained glass windows! Your Oulu Cathedral ist rather beautiful, Matti. Light, elegant and quite natural and even unpretentious as far as the outside is concerned. A very friendly look! On top of it the cathedral interior. This combination of a rather attractive nave, stained glass windows as well as impressive organ and votive ships makes the whole church rather special to me.
    Thanks also for your link to Carl Ludvig Engel!

    • Hi Amy.

      Thank You. Votive ships are gorgeous presenting high craftsmanship. Who makes them, must take regard that people see them below. This is why their bottom part is bigger than it would be normally. I have read somewhere that it takes about a year to make them.

      Have a wonderful day!

      Oh, thank you loving my post. We have some nice churches in Finland. Maybe You love this one:

      St. Henry’s church

      This church near to Helsinki is one of my favorite:

      Church of Lohja

      On all of its walls, there are chalk paintings.

      Happy Sunday!
