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 corner-posts. It is decorated with a design of interlaced deer-headed serpents. The side and back of the post were grooved for the panels to slot in. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
