Object Detail


Found near St Giles' Kirk in Elgin in the early 19th century, this stone Pictish cross slab now stands near the north-east corner of the crossing in Elgin Cathedral, Morayshire. It was probably used as a marker rather than a tomb slab. On the south face is a cross with four figures in the corners, possibly representing the Evangelists, with an abstract design below formed by interlacing forms of animals' heads; on the other are Pictish symbols known as the double-disc, Z-rod, crescent and V-rod above a hunting scene.
