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 part of the front panel of the sarcophagus. It shows the figure of David rending the jaws of the lion. This drawing clearly shows the skill which went into carving the stone. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
