‘An Athame for the Leithen’

‘An Athame for the Leithen’ (20 x 3.5 cm). Slate from the disused quarry at Altarstone, Stobo. Wood from one of the old church pews from the Church of Scotland, Innerleithen. Blade carvings replicate the cup and ring markings from the so-called ‘Runic Cross’, now housed in the aforementioned church.

Part of ‘A Sense of Place’ exhibition showing in the Tweeddale Museum and Gallery, Peebles from 5th August to 2nd September 2017.
