Dado with interlaced arches (type 8b)

Dado carved in bas-relief (type 8b). This type is represented by one fragmentary specimen. The existing decoration is composed of one section with a sequence of interlaced trilobated arches. The arches, which enclose an incised vegetal motif, alternate with vertical motifs created by split-palmettes and fleur-de-lis.

The dimensions are unknown.

The artifact was first recorded in the Rawza Museum in Ghazni in 1957.

Type 8b differs from dado type 8a for the vegetal motifs.
