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 the side of one of the corner-posts. It is decorated with interlace patterns. The height of the relief carvings on the front of the post can also be seen from this angle. This post is at the left side of the front panel.
