Dado with interlaced arches (type 12)

Dado carved in bas-relief (type 12). 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 artifacts were found re-employed in the Ghazni area in 1957; one artifact was first recorded in the Rawza Museum in Ghazni in 2002.

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