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. This clearly shows the great skill the stone's carver possessed. Cross-shapes have been carved back into the stone and the entire surface has been covered in intricate interlace patterns.
