Dado carved in bas-relief (type 21). The decoration is composed of two horizontal sections: the upper section consists of a band with leftbound running animals on a background of vegetal elements, the lower section of a sequence of interlaced trilobated arches. The band of trilobated arches meets at an angle of ab. 90°. They are set against a vegetal pattern of interlaced half-palmettes and fleur-de-lis.

The height of the larger panel with known dimensions (fragmentary) is 44 cm, its width 26.5 cm; its thickness 6 cm.

Most of the artifacts were found re-employed in the Ghazni area (the surveys occurred in the late 1950s-1970s); one artifact was first recorded in the Rawza Museum in Ghazni the late 1950s-1960s.
