Sueno's Stone 3D Model
Sueno’s Stone is a gigantic Pictish cross-slab measuring 7m tall, carved between the mid-800s and early 900s and located in Forres, Scotland. Its carvings are ornate and unique. We see here a rare and complex narrative depiction of a battle, and a wholly unique scene interpreted as a royal inauguration.
The stone would have once overlooked the marshy floodplains of the rivers Mosse and Findhorn. Unusually, it’s still associated with the place it was first erected, though we know little of its wider context.
This model was created using a combination of photogrammetry and laser scanning to accurately capture and record the detailed carvings of the stone.
