Is that all verdigrised copper (or brass) on top of the steeple/tower? Just curious, if you know. (Don't know why I'm curious, maybe I have some cat genes.)

Do you find the architecture to be similar to parts of New York?

I thought you had an older photo thread that showed some of your Pella, Iowa photos and wanted to compare them.  The architecture really makes them look like the same town (at least to me).
A book, I think, is very like a little golden door.
That takes me into places where I've never been before.
It leads me into fairyland or countries strange and far.
And, best of all, the golden door always stands ajar. - Adelaide Love

For her 50th birthday, the Queen of Denmark commissioned a series of tapestries (or someone commissioned them as a gift to her).  they took 10 years to finish, and to my eyes, they are really weird looking. 







Can you find the beatles in the tapestry below?

Weird is one word for it. I hope they at least have some personal meaning to her.

Upper right above the buildings?  These are all odd looking to me as well, I've never seen modern/impressionist looking tapestries.

Yes, and at the bottom, Mao, Stalin(?), Lenin, JFK, LBJ (?). Nixon, too, I think.

correct.  the tapestry in question is the one about the 20th century so along the top and bottom are important figures from the 20th century. 

The tapestries didn't really look woven to me and I found the colors bizarre and too "cartoony", but apparently the artist is some famous Danish dude, so...

Here's artwork more to my taste (ceiling in the tapestry room)

The ceiling art is more to my taste as well. 

Was there any sort of legend for the 20th Century tapestry?  We could do a whole where's Waldo thing with the various people represented.  I think that's Churchill to the left of JFK, Ghandi to the right, looks like Walter Cronkite just to the right of center at the top, maybe Ruth Bader Ginsburg 2nd on the left from center/top.  Would be interesting to know why individuals were chosen and displayed the way they are.
