Description

Front view-of-figure-5INTRO

NISMR No.: FER 173:002

Monument Type: Early Christian figures

One of eight early Christian stone figures located at White Island ecclesiastical settlement. Figure has distinctive curly hair, and holds the necks of two part-bird, part-animal creatures; these may be gryphons, symbolising the dual nature of Christ, part human, part divine. A panel of broad-ribbon interlace on the right hand side of this stone creates the impression of a decorated chair.
