Klaksvik – The Faroes – The fascinating cathedral.

As an atheist, I do find it interesting to look at the artistic and financial resources that are poured into superstition. The best artists and craftsmen were employed to make structures and art that were intended to impress. That was its purpose.

This one was no exception. It was impressive. And I’ve not been in a religious building that had incorporated an old whaling boat into its interior.

The other amazing thing was the quality of the artistic wood art in the basement.
