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 the end panels. Only a small fragment remains, but it shows the great skill of the stone's carver in carving interlace patterns. The panel probably originally consisted of a cross with animal interlace between the arms. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
