Scope and Content Pictish cross-slab, Kettins churchyard, Perth and Kinross In 1865, this massive slab, used as the cover of a bridge over the Kettins Burn, was identified as a Pictish cross-slab. Today the stone stands within the burial-ground of Kettins parish church. Only this face of the stone bears any decoration. The lower part of the cross-shaft survives, filled with alternating panels of interlace. On the right side of the cross are four panels of worn decoration, comprising fantastic animals and human figures. Over 200 Pictish symbol stones are known in Scotland, employing a variety of symbols. Carvings drawing on the real world, such as objects and animals, are found in conjunction with detailed abstract designs and fantastic creatures. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
