Dado with interlaced arches (type 34a)

Dado carved in bas-relief (type 34a). The existing decoration is composed of a (single or double) sequence of interlaced trilobated arches. The arches are plain inside and alternate with vertical motifs created by split-palmettes and fleur-de-lis.

The dimensions are unknown.

The artifacts were first recorded in the Rawza Museum in Ghazni in the late 1950s-1960s.

Type 34a differs from dado type 34b for the vegetal motifs.
