3D model of a stone bowl found in a Pictish cairn at Dalcharne, in the Strath of Kildonan, in 1853. The vessel comprises an oval bowl with one broken short lug-like, perforated handle. It is made from a soft rock, similar to soapstone, and has concentric and unusual repeated wheat sheaf decoration. The blackening at one at one end of the bowl may signify burning reside and its possible alternative use as a lamp. Dated 500BC-500AD. Physical object held at the Timespan Museum. Part of the Iron Age Kildonan reconstruction.
