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 the front panel and two of the corner-posts. The panel is finely carved in high relief and depicts scenes from the David story from the bible. The posts are decorated with animal interlace. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
