On The Nose

Pict with Drinking Horn This 9th century warrior of the Pictish tribe drinks from an eagle, the ancient symbol of power.  From Invergowrie, Scotland and now in the Museum of Scotland, it is an unusually droll carving, certainly a caricature, perhaps in the category of the Scandinavian insult stones, which were carved as an artistic and bloodless "thumbing of the nose" to a perceived insult.  It is the earliest artistic rendering of drinking on Scottish stones.

Then I printed it on card stock and trimmed the edges a little, glued the picture to blue cardstock, and used my circle paper punch to get the noses.Here is the link to the picture I used. You can color it online too but I wanted it bigger that's why I downloaded it…
