Scotland’s History and heritage in miniature
Celtic & Pictish Crosses & carved stones
Historic Architecture models
This design & sculpture by Stuart Fellowes, was inspired by Celtic and Pictish carved rock art. It depicts an outline map of Scotland carved into a stone to reveal the Lion Rampant flag within.
The Lion Rampant symbolises Scottish Royalty which started with the house of Canmore in the 12th Century. King David 1 placed the Lion Rampant in his shield that then became the first Royal Scottish Standard. Before this, the boar emblem originally decorated the Royal flag. There is debate as to the earliest origins of the symbol with Kings William & Alexander who used it as the “Arms of the Dominion of Scotland” also being attributed as the first to use the device.
The Lion Rampant, strictly speaking belongs solely to the Monarch - though it is often displayed privately as a token of loyalty to the crown. It is used in an official capacity at Royal residences in Scotland when the Monarch is not in residence.
This piece comes ready with a hanging hole on the rear to enable it to be hung flush to the wall from a pin-nail.
