St Magnus Cathedral

I was unaware of this sheela until I was on holiday in Orkney and I happened to read about it while in Kirkwall. I set off to the cathedral but had to ask a guide to point her out to me. I only had my phone with me so the photograph is very small and poor quality but you can make her out sat high on one of the the pillars. I would imagine most visitors never know she is there. She reminds me of the Bridlington sheela.
