A New Forteviot Cross

Commissioned by the Tay Landscape Partnership, this is my new Pictish Cross for the historic village of Forteviot, near Perth. The cross commemorates the king of Pictavia,  Cinaed son of Alpin, who died at Forteviot in 858 AD.

The cross side uses knotwork motifs from fragments found at Forteviot. The key pattern is inspired by carvings at Iona.
