Pictish beastie wall plaques

This particular Pictish ‘beastie’ is found on Rodney’s Stone, which is located close to the entrance of Brodie Castle, near Forres in Moray.


These two plaques were made for a recent commission. Freehand carved and enamelled, 30 x 20 cm.



Replica Pictish Stones for Inverness Museum

I recently hand carved these three replica Pictish stones for a schools loan box for Inverness Museum and Art Gallery.

This first one is the Ardross Wolf (a Class I Pictish Stone) from a stone found built into a stone wall in 1903. Hand carved into a reclaimed Scottish purple roof slate.



The second is the Ardross ‘Beast’ or Deer (a Class I Pictish Stone) which was found built into the same stone wall as the Ardross Wolf in 1903. Hand carved into a reclaimed Scottish grey roof slate.



The final one is the Crescent and V-Rod and ‘Mirror’ from the Knowe O’ Burrian Class I Pictish Stone from Orkney. Hand carved into a reclaimed Cornish roof slate.
