Pictish Sculpture
Tarbat Discovery Centre

An excellent example of original Pictish knotwork, this detailed carved stone was found in a steading (or farmstead) at Tarbat Old Manse in 1999.   

One face of the stone features an intricate square key pattern and the other shows an interlaced panel of spirals.   

Many Pictish designs have been found across the north half of Scotland. The name Picts, meaning painted people, was given to them by the Romans.
