The Farr Stone 3D Model
The Farr Stone is a cross slab situated outside the Strathnaver Museum, Bettyhill, Sutherland, Scotland. The slab is thought to date to 800-850AD, it presently stands 2.28 metres out of the ground although the decorated surface continues down beneath the grass.
The cross slab contains both Pictish and Irish design elements. The basic design is a ringed cross with central boss, the shaft rises from a semi-circular base containing two birds (swans?) with intertwined necks. The designs have been further elaborated with decorative panels including key pattern (Pictish) and interlacing infill.
The other faces of the stone are undecorated, so the 3D model has been built to show just the decorated face of the stone to keep as much detail as possible.
