"Oh, Boy!": a part of the Kamarama art project behind the church of Our Lady in Bruges, Belgium.

"Yves Obyn created this very special art work for Kamarama. It represents a crashed Beechcraft Bonanza. A fanatic built his own airplane but because of the poor construction, it quickly crashed. The spectator is a disaster tourist, causing a congestion in the heart of Bruges due to the curiosity factor..." (Text from the nearby info plaque).

The 17th-century church of St. Walburga, a rare Baroque interior in the Gothic-dominated city of Bruges, Belgium.

"Built as a collegiate church for the Jesuit Brothers by Brother Huyssens. Erected in Baroque style in 1619 and completed in 1643. First church in the Low Countries and probably in the world, that is devoted to Saint Francis Xavier, a great missionary of India and Japan, where he stayed from 1549 to 1551. His letters illustrate the great esteem and appreciation he showed for the Japanese people." (Text from the leaflet found inside the church).

The 12th-century chapel of Saint Basil on the lower level of the Basilica of the Holy Blood in Bruges, Belgium.

"The chapel of Saint Basil is one of the best preserved churches in Romanesque style of West Flanders. Built from 1134 to 1149, the chapel is dedicated to St. Basil the Great of whom a relic was brought back by Count Robert II from Caesarea Mazaca in Cappadocia, Asia Minor (modern-day Turkey). The chapel consists of two side naves and a central nave continued by the choir, which in turn is ended by a semi-circular apse. In the tympanum above the entrance linking the chapel and the annex is a 12th-century representation of the baptism of Saint Basil. In the right nave, the Seated Madonna and Child (Sedes Sapientiae) is a wooden polychrome sculpture of the early 14th century. Carried each year during the procession, two venerated wooden statues, made around 1900 and representing Jesus on the Cold Stone and the Pieta are displayed. At the left of the choir, the chapel of Saint Yves was added in 1504 and houses the relics of Saint Basil and of Blessed Charles the Good, Count of Flanders. The black marble retable is allegedly executed from designs by Lancelot Blondeel." (Text from Wikipedia).
