The Church of Saint George, one of the eleven churches hewn out of stone, in Lalibela, Ethiopia.  It was built in the late 12th or early 13th century.  Ethiopian Christian artwork also has a long and impressive history.

Formerly, the Holy Trinity German Catholic Church in Boston's South End.  Currently, a condominium complex.  This is an architectural parable of Western post-Christian culture.  Often, a culture comes to inhabit a formerly Christian community, even when only a shell remains.  Nevertheless, the shell has a particular shape.
