Stavanger is the third-largest urban zone and metropolitan area in Norway. Stavanger’s core is to a large degree 18th- and 19th-century wooden houses that are protected and considered part of the city’s cultural heritage. This has caused the town centre and inner city to retain a small-town character with an unusually high ratio of detached houses, and has contributed significantly to spreading the city’s population growth to outlying parts of Greater Stavanger.
Stavanger is today considered the center of the oil industry in Norway and is one of Europe’s energy capitals and is often called the oil capital. But it does not limit the dwellers of the city to pursue their artistic dreams and share it openly.
Photographer DOVA has collected some of the striking street arts in this peculiar city.

Christmas cards give important clues about how this special festive season is perceived by society. That is the reason why I always found historical designs and cards so special for revealing the evolution of traditions of Christmas. We have collected ten specially designed Christmas cards designed in Norway between 1800s and the beginnig of 1900s.

Credit: Andreas Bloch (1860-1917) | This winter post card from Norway is from 1907. A stereotypical Norwegian lady on skies.
Artist: Andreas Ollestad (1857-1936) | This unorthodox Norwegian new year/Christmas card is from 1880s.
Another nontraditional new year card with A Norwegian fisherman and his wife. The card was designed by Oscar Wergeland (1844-1910) in mid 1800s.
Andreas Bloch (1860-1917)’s Christmas post card depicts a Norwegian town with children going door to door traditionally.
This postcard from the archive of National Library of Norway dates back to 1920. It is evidently not most family friendly postcard with a champagne bottle as the main element of the design by the unknown artist.
After all, Christmas is a religious holiday and this Norwegian Christmas card reflects the religious spirit of this festive season.
The designer of this postcard, Aadne Stray, depicts a typical Norwegian house from 1890s with traditional costumes.
Christmas is equally a fun time especailly for retired “Nisses”. Artist: Nils Bergslien (1853-1928)
Nobody said Norwegian nisses are the prettiest creatures on tearth. But they have a sense of festive spirit. | Artist: Christian Magnus
