Dado with interlaced arches (type 13)

Dado carved in bas-relief (type 13). 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 first recorded in the Rawza Museum in Ghazni in 2002.

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