Pipercraft Hooded Abbot Figurine

Scotland had monasteries and monks from around the time of St Columba at Iona (who died in 597), but it is from the reign of King Malcolm III and his wife, St Margaret, in the late eleventh century, that Scotland fell into line with the rest of Europe and its monasteries started to contain the iconic hooded figures you see here. Scotland's major medieval abbeys dominated the kingdom and to name an illustrious few, there were Holyrood, Arbroath, Deer, Crossraguel, Paisley, Dundrennan, Glenluce, Sweetheart. Whithorn, Balmarino, Dunfermline, Inchcolm, Beauly, Newbattle, Pluscardin, Coldingham, Dryburgh, Melrose, Scone, and many more. Monks were an integral part of the kingdom. Here we have a humble Abbot, the leader of the monastry, with his crozier of office. 

Stands 8.5cm tall and is cast from high quality 100% lead-free pewter. Presented on a base of polished wood, using off-cuts from our bagpipe workshops.

Cast and finished by our team of dedicated craftsmen in our workshop in the heart of Glasgow, Scotland.

Pewter figures are usually ready to ship within a day or two if not in stock.
