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 drawing of one of the end panels which appeared in John Stuart's 1856 publication 'The Sculptured Stones of Scotland'. It shows a cross decorated with interlace. Surrounding it are two pairs of monkeys and two sets of bosses and serpents. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
