This oval carving of the god Jupiter dates from the early 17th century. It is one of eight panels with planetary deities that were originally set into the east wall of the walled garden at Edzell Castle.
Commissioned by David Lynsey, these carvings are likely to have been copied from engravings by the German artist Georg Pencz (c.1500-c.1550) that were published in contemporary pattern books.
