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 of the sarcophagus. It is very highly decorated with interlace patterns. The post was grooved to allow the main panels to be slotted into position. Only three of these post still survive.
