Dado with interlaced arches (type 25)

Dado carved in bas-relief (type 25). This type is represented by one fragmentary specimen. The existing decoration is composed of a sequence of interlaced trilobated arches, set against a very irregularly composed vegetal pattern.

The height of the panel is 31.7 cm, its width 43.5 cm (both incomplete); its thickness is unknown.

The artifact was found re-employed in the Ghazni area in 1957.

Type 25 might have been used as an architectural dado or as a tomb paneling.
