Kinord Cross

Kinord Cross

Kite-shaped slab with excellently preserved interlace-filled cross carved in relief on one surface. Note the small scroll ends to the arms of the cross and the absence of symbols; this is a purely Christian monument from the end of the Pictish period, sometime in the 9th Century.
