Imagine you are in the Scottish highlands in a sacred valley about 1,400 years ago. You are standing in front of newly-erected standing stone carved by a Pictish artist. The stone is about twelve feet tall and decorated with strange symbols, mystical and familiar creatures, and perhaps a hunting scene or a depiction of warriors going to settle a dispute. This sculpture is a fragment of the whole stone and what it would have looked like before 1,400 years of aging by the elements. Martin carved this relief on a sandstone slab. He depicts warriors going to battle in an authentic Pictish style as a fragment of an original stone.
