White Island Carved Figure ::

The info sign says:

"Figure with curly hair, grasping the necks of two winged, bird-headed creatures with four legs with claws, like griffins. The panel of broad-ribbon loose interlace on the right side of the stone resembles decoration on a high-backed chair."

Thought by some to represent the duality of Christ as Man and God.
