Dado with double sequence of interlaced arches (type 28a)

Dado carved in bas-relief (type 28a). The decoration is composed of a double sequence of interlaced trilobated arches. The arches are plain inside and alternate with vertical motifs created by split-palmettes and fleur-de-lis.

The dimensions of the complete panel are unknown, but the height of the larger fragment is 48.5 cm (incomplete), its width 43 cm; its thickness is unknown.

The artifacts were found re-employed in the Ghazni area (the surveys occurred in the late 1950s-1970s); some were first recorded in the Rawza Museum in Ghazni in the same period.

Type 28a differs from dadoes type 28b for the vegetal motifs.
