Dado with interlaced arches (type 5d)

Dado carved in bas-relief (type 5d). This type is represented by one specimen.
The decoration is composed of one section with a sequence of interlaced trilobated arches alternating with vertical motifs created by split-palmettes and fleur-de-lis. The arches enclose an incised vegetal motif.

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. It differs from dadoes types 5a, 5b and 5c for the vegetal motifs.
