Photographer's Note

The Viking Ship Museum in Oslo displays three remarkable finds -- viking ships that date to the 9th Century, discovered (in the case of this ship, the "Gokstad" find) in 1880, preserved in clay in a burial mound.

The museum is beautifully designed and presents the history in a very tangible manner. When you tour the museum, the composition of this foto is obvious -- you will find many like it on the internet -- but the angle shows the shipbuilders' craftsmanship to be both artful and functional and allows the artisans to speak to us across the centuries.

This was originally shot on 35mm Fuji Velvia transparency film.
