This photo was posted on the Net in 2000 by Niven Sinclair (Family Sinclair of Rosslyn Chapel fame). He claims to have "rescued" it from an old Sinclair graveyard. You can see from this photo that it was displayed on a platform and given a title: KING OF TERRORS. Apparently, at one time, it was displayed in the crypt of the Rosslyn Chapel (there are other photos of this gravestone around the Net suggesting this). When we were there it was relegated to a small side room of the crypt with other "odds and ends." It was not on display. It lay horizontally (minus the platform and inscription) on some sort of shelf.
