Oldest traditional wooden black church of the Faroe Islands

Hvalvík faroe islands church-DeNoiseAI-clear

Hvalvík, Faroe Islands (July 2021)

from Wikipedia:
“The Church in Hvalvík is a traditional wooden church dating from 1829, built because the old Church from 1700 was ruined in a storm. It is the third oldest Church in the Faroe Islands, though the oldest of the traditional wooden black churches. The Church is built with wood bought from a ship that ran aground in Saksun in 1828. The architecture is typically Faroese, with no stone foundations. The pulpit dates back to 1609 and was originally in the Church in Tórshavn.

The famous Bishop Alexander was raised in Hvalvík, in a place called Frammi við Kráir. Legend has it, that he was the first to import knives and forks.

The Church was featured on Faroese stamps issued in 1997.”

According to Wikipedia…

A white picket fence symbolizes Americana, the ideal middle-class suburban life, with a family and children, large house, and peaceful living.

I see the peaceful living in this photo but none of the other things…
