Dado with zoomorphic decoration (type 23)

Dado carved in bas-relief (type 23). The existing decoration is composed of two horizontal sections: the upper section consists of a band with leftbound running animals and vegetal elements, the lower section of a sequence of interlaced trilobated arches. The trilobated arches are set against a vegetal pattern of interlaced half-palmettes and fleur-de-lis.

The height of the panels (incomplete) varies from 31 cm to 37 cm, their width from 25.5 cm to 27 cm; their thickness is 5 cm.

The artifacts were purchased in Ghazni in the late 1950s-1960s.
