Decorated Wooden Box
Groam House Museum
The label on the box’s base reads ‘College of Celtic Art Drumnadrochit by Pupil Kirkcaldy High School’. This was established by George Bain to give people the opportunity to study their own history and Celtic influences.
From Scrabster in Caithness, Bain was captivated by intricate Pictish stones, early medieval illuminated manuscripts and ornate metalwork from Britain and Ireland. He made detailed drawings of the designs and created an instruction method to help others to recreate them through a series of simple steps.
