Pictish ‘Elephant’/’Porpoise’ Wall Plaque

This Pictish wall plaque is from a carving on the Class II Rodney’s Stone at Brodie Castle near Forres. Hand carved from a reclaimed roof slate.

This has (rather lazily) been interpreted as an ‘elephant’! Personally I’m of the opinion that this design is derived from a porpoise or dolphin.
