A house on the waterfront in Bergen, Norway. I really like the architecture in Norway. They have the slatted wood siding and interesting paint colours, although many places are painted plain white. They have a famous cheese which they call brown cheese (for obvious reasons), and another common colour for houses is the same colour as this cheese. I mentioned this to someone in Norway and they said they hadn't noticed it before.
Old houses in Zhouzhang, China. Very often the roof tiles in China are circular, and they stack them subvertically like a stack of poker chips laying on their sides. This certainly requires far more tiles to cover a roof than if they were laid flat, so they must do it for decorative reasons.
The interior of the temple at Abu Simbel, in Egypt. It's amazing how fresh the carvings still look after all of this time. I suppose they have been out of the elements. This one shows an offering of lotus flowers I think, to a god.
During the last century the Germans spent a lot of time crowbarring stuff off the walls of historical sites in other countries and reconstructing them in museums back at home. This is at the Ancient Museum in Berlin, and is probably from the Middle East. I suppose they are very good at what they do and would likely save stuff that may have been destroyed or looted otherwise.
An Andy Warhol of Mao at the Modern Art Museum in Berlin. I doubt they crowbarred this off Andy's wall though, perhaps they bought it.
