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 animal interlace patterns, finely carved in high relief. One side and the back were grooved so that the side and end panels could slot into place.
