Dado with interlaced arches (type 1)

Dado carved in bas-relief (type 1). This type is represented by one specimen.
The decoration is composed of one section with a 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 are unknown.

The artifact was first recorded in the Ghazni new storerooms in 2002.

This type might have been used as an architectural dado or as a tomb paneling.
