Pictish Throne Recreated

The first Pictish throne to be built in more than a thousand years has been unveiled at the National Museum of Scotland. A throne built to a design used by the ancient Picts has gone on display at the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh. The seat was created by master furniture maker Adrian McCurdy who drew inspiration from stone carvings. The Picts dominated Scotland north of the Firth of Clyde from the 4th to the 9th centuries AD, leaving behind these symbol stones.

The throne will go on display first at the Edinburgh Festival Theatre from 1 December and at the Glenmorangie Distillery in Tain, Ross-shire, next year. It will be displayed at other sites later.
