Dado with interlaced arches (type 3)

Dado carved in bas-relief (type 3). This type is represented by one specimen.
The existing decoration is composed of four horizontal sections: the upper section and lowermost sections are not preserved; the second consists of a beaded band, the third section of a trilobated arch ending in a vegetal motif. The arch is plain inside. A lateral plain stripe constitutes the panel’s left frame. 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.
