Here you see some of the inside of Torpo stave church. Again you see the staves carrying the load of the church and the post and lintel construction which helps carrying. The paintings on the arch above the altar are very beautiful!!

Yes, they are on the ceiling of the arch!! I can see what you mean and it is indeed a special illusion!! Thanks so very much Ardy!!

Hanne, The arch in the picture produces an optical illusion. Sometimes I see it recessed back with a floor. Sometimes it looks like the outer edge of a concave structure extending out. Sometimes it seems to be the ceiling of the arch. I'm guessing in reality the paintings are on the ceiling of the arch. Am I right? Really interesting picture. Thanks, Hanne.
