Sculpted Stone, Skara Brae, Orkney 3D Model
This small stone artefact was found on the late Neolithic (3200-2400 BC) settlement at Skara Brae, Sandwick, Orkney. This artefact has been carefully ground to a form that is reminiscent of the whale bone figurine from Skara Brae, which was rediscovered in Stromness Museum in 2016 (https://skfb.ly/NKDt). However, in the absence of any clearly defined features, the classification or function of this artefact is not clear.
