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.

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.

Delivered two of my Mani Stones to Samye Ling Tibetan Buddhist Monastery this week.

Very chuffed that they are stocking my work- it’s an amazing place.

These are hand-carved from large Cornish sea-stones which I collected from beaches in North Cornwall.
