scene in focus

gruesome

A hunting scene depicted on the shaft of the 15th century Macmillan Cross at Kilmory chapel.

Whatever your feelings on hunting with dogs you have to bear in mind that this was life in those days, and the carving is particularly clear and has survived well (unlike that stag) and presents a snapshot of social history of that period.

(I on purpose put the picture sideways to show it better)
