Fragment of a cross shaft. The front is decorated with interlace strands which are incised with a central groove and are carved in the stopped plait style. On one edge is a row of interlinked rings, this time carved using plain narrow-band interlace. 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.
