The Pictish Carved Figure known as Rhynie Man may depict howe the Picts may have looked!

Gavin Alston ploughed up the stone 1978 at his farm Barflat, Rhynie. The Gabbro stone measures 1.78m long and dates between 700 and 800AD. It has an incised figure of a man walking, an axe upon his shoulder and wearing some sort of sleeved garment just above the knee and tied around the waist by cord. His shoes are pointed and he wares some sort of head dress. There are few Pictish carved figures in Scotland and this is the earliest figure carving to date in Grampian. It now stands in the foyer of Regional Council Offices, Aberdeen.
