The original is carved in wood and was created ca. 1050-1070. It is from the north side of the church. The carvings from the stave church at Urnes, Norway have given rise to the name of a style that developed beginning in the second quarter of the 11th century in Scandinavia and Scandinavian settlements in Ireland and England. The style is characterized by the use of transformed Ringerike-style motifs and new elements. Compositions are more unified than Ringerike, and typically include extremely stylized animals, with larger animals displaying a distinctive swelling and tapering of the body.
