Dado with double sequence of interlaced arches (type 31)

Dado carved in bas-relief (type 31). The decoration is composed of one section with a double sequence of interlaced trilobated arches. The arches, which enclose an incised vegetal motif, alternate with vertical motifs created by split-palmettes and fleur-de-lis; they are positioned one on top of the other.

The dimensions are unknown.

One panel has incised marks that are related to the carvers’ practice; it might be a location mark.

The artifacts were found re-employed in the Ghazni area 1957.
