Scope and Content Sarcophagus at St Andrews Cathedral, St Andrews, Fife This sarcophagus is in the museum at St Andrews Cathedral. It is the finest example of Pictish sculpture in Scotland. It consisted of four panels that slotted into corner-posts. It was possibly used as a shrine or reliquary. This is a view of one of the end panels. It is virtually complete and is decorated with a large cross decorated with intricate interlace. Between the arms are two pair of creatures, probably monkeys, and two bosses surrounded by serpents.
