Dado with interlaced arches (type 11d)

Dado carved in bas-relief (type 11d). This type is represented by one specimen. The decoration is composed of one section with a sequence of interlaced trilobated arches. They are set against a vegetal pattern of interlaced half-palmettes and fleur-de-lis.

The dimensions are unknown.

The artifact was found re-employed in the Ghazni area (the surveys occurred in the late 1950s-1970s).

Type 11d might have been used as an architectural dado or as a tomb paneling. It differs from dadoes types 10, 11a, 11b, 11c, 12, 13 mainly for the vegetal pattern; the vegetal pattern is identical to type 19.
