Lower part of a cross shaft. On both sides are panels of interlace in which the strands are emphasised by central grooves and are carved in the stopped plait style. This stone belongs to the period before the ‘Whithorn school’ style became fixed. At this time sculptors had begun using interlace, but were still experimenting with styles. On display in the Whithorn Priory Museum, Whithorn, Dumfries and Galloway.
