So, Pictish symbols may also be sign-posts and religious symbols,at the same time.At the time the Celtic Cross symbol was being carved,(late on in Pict history) it may have meant, “Church just here” and of course has its own sybolic meaning too, as do the Catholic shrines that are all over Scotland and Ireland!We are now finding Picitsh symbols all the way down to the Border with England.A lot of us who have researched this have known this already and had no doubt that the Picts build the Brochs which were a sign of their genius. Rubbish most Scots are Picts all that changed was religion aka Christianity which has a lot to answer for.I was told and I agree that this is the goal of the initiate to unify man’s polar nature/ polarity consciousness.The v rod and z rod are both masonry tools amongst other things previously mentioned in the comments, various cycles ect.The fire that burned more when you threw water on to it was believed to be made from mainly highly flammable Pine resin. The Antoine wall has at least 15 areas which show vitrification there is also many parts of Hadrian’s wall with signs of vitrification.There are hill forts allover Scotland that have signs of vitrification built long before the Romans existed as a force.

The Aboriginals have stones marking water holes (And in Africa) and some ancient Native American communities marked water, food and other things with marks, for example a wooden spoon denotes water, certain berries hanging or moose bones, mean they are found here etc.
But at the same time could have been also offerings for gratitude .
There is also proof out there that the celtic and pict did not derive from the same people.
What is true and what is not may never be known, thanks to religions and governments destroying and wiping out any evidence of a culture. However, as well as deep meanings, remember the Inuit have marker stones for safe ice drinking water.Then onto the symbols themselves: Mermaid/ centaur is seen in almost identical fashion around the world including the Americas, especially Mexico and Peru.
