Sacred Symbols Exhibit
Vesterheim is pleased to offer the traveling exhibition Sacred Symbols: The Folk Art of Norway, featuring wood, silver, horn, and textile artifacts from Vesterheim’s collections. Through the exhibition, visitors will be able to identify the many symbols that have come down from the Viking past and understand something about the use of symbols in family rituals in Norway in the nineteenth century. The variety of artifacts within each theme shows visitors that the symbols were used broadly each day and especially during life-changing rituals.
