Dunkeld Cathedral, Apostles Stone 3D Model
Dunkeld Cathedral, Perthshire, Scotland.
A Pictish cross slab dating to the 9th-10th century. This sandstone slab currently stands to a height of 1.47 metres although it was once much larger. The slab has been recorded as having been reused as a gatepost at the entrance to the cathedral and some of the damage appears to been associated with this. There have been different theories over the years as to what the carvings on the stone depict. A depiction of the twelve apostles has now largely been discredited, a common interpretation is the biblical story of ‘Daniel in the lions den’, ‘the miracle of the loaves and fishes’ and a battle scene. I can see similarities to the 7 metre tall Sueno’s Stone at Forres, Scotland – which was carved around the same time (see this model from Historic Environment Scotland https://skfb.ly/6HCWz ).
