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 shows one of the two pairs of creatures that surround the cross. The creatures are probably monkeys. This shows that the stone's carver had some form of outside influence.
