Martyrdom of St Magnus display - SMC137

Mounted on the organ screen in the presbytery of St Magnus Cathedral is a collection of painted panels. They were painted by fifteen children, aged thirteen years, from the Isle of Arran.

The panels depict the events surrounding the martyrdom of St Magnus and the construction of the Cathedral. The scenes are accompanied by a centrally mounted description.

The panels were presented to the people of Orkney on June 10th 1980 as a tribute to the St Magnus Festival.
