This compass drawn piece consists of a series of arcs forming a marigold pattern framed within an inscribed circle. It fits into the category of church graffiti and is likely to have been a practice piece rather than a piece of art in its own right. It is preserved on a fifteenth-century pillar supporting the rood screen at Clontuskert Abbey.
