Gothic Columns and Vaults, 1449-1500,  Aarhus Cathedral, Aarhus, Denmark

Aarhus Cathedral, as it now exists, was built in the Gothic style between 1449 and 1500. Like the exterior, the columns are made of brick, rather than marble or another stone. Prior to the Reformation, at which time the walls were painted to cover the frescoes, the natural brick might have been exposed. The painting decorating the vaults which the columns support was restored in 1990.

Constructed during the Ptolemaic dynasty, 180–47 BC the Temple of Kom Ombu is unique. It is a symmetrical double temple dedicated to two gods: the crocodile god Sobek (who was a god of fertility and creator of the world with Hathor and Khonsu) and the falcon god Haroeris, also known as Horus the Elder.
