Another mural from the recent No Limit Street Art Festival. This one is on the wall of an hotel, best seen from the Town Park across the river. The artist is Fintan Magee, a muralist based in Sydney, Australia (born 1985).

Inspired Sunday - Norra Fågelås Church

As hinted at in my last post from Hjo, from there we continued driving south along Lake Vättern, back down to Jönköping. On the way, we stopped at four old countryside churches. The first was Norra Fågelås (norra=north), only about 5 km south of Hjo.

170730-03 Norra Fågelås kyrka

There has probably been a church here since back in the 12th century. The first document mentioning the church is from 1225. Some of the walls are supposed to be from the original church. The building has been reconstructed and repaired several times over the centuries, though.

The wooden bell tower was added in the 1300s. Originally, the tower was probably of a more open construction.

Walking around the church, we noticed this sculptured stone slab in the wall. I haven’t found any info on it online, but my guess is that it may once have been set in the floor indoors, as a funeral/memorial slab. (It was common in medeival times for the most wealthy and important families to have their graves within the church rather than in the graveyard.) This church wasn’t open when we were there, so we could not go inside.

Waiting For The Sky To Dry

DSC02082

The first week in September, we had another street art festival here in Borås, adding even more murals around the city. Some of the works I saw more than once while they were still “in progress” – like the one below: Lonac’s “Waiting for the Sky to Dry”.

“Wating for the sky to dry” is a very good title for a mural in one of the rainiest cities in Sweden… Wise from experience, though, the organizers let this festival run from one weekend to the next; a time span long enough to let the artists finish their works even in “mixed” weather (some sunny days, some rainy).

Autumn Colours

Höstcollage FB 170918

We’ve had quite a bit of rain lately, but some days I’ve managed to get out for a walk in between the showers.
