art in craft

tour of the baltic states (23)

unusual and fascinating pattern of wooden shingles on the roof of a farm house in rumšiškės open-air-museum - from when people still knew how to do things with their hands ...

this ends our walk through a remarkable museum, one of the largest in europe and definitely worth a visit. on monday, on to "something entirely different"!
till then, have a great weekend!

A fine example of the craftsmanship that went in to these hand-crafted roofs. A fine shot.

A beautiful roof. The skill reminds me of the roofs on Japanese temples. An art form for sure. I'm guessing there are only a few people who can complete a roof like you show us here.
