Six carved panels from Fetteresso Church are identified as originating from the workshop of John Fendour of Aberdeen. Their date and iconography suggests a connection with the visits of King James IV to his friend Patrick Paniter, vicar of Fetteresso. They are a remarkable survival of the Scottish Reformation, depicting two saints, a bare breasted mermaid and pigs dancing and playing the bagpipes. The contemporary context for this choice of images is explained, revealing a rare example of Scottish medieval bawdy humour.
