Panel with whirls pattern (type 11)

Rectangular panels composing a high facing.

The decoration is composed of an exterior cursive epigraphic frame, and of a main section with a whirls modular pattern framed. The pattern consists of whirls departing each from a small circle, and having four wings (each decorated by three small feather-like elements), whose ends are interlaced and converge two by two, in the form of a palmette, towards opposing fleur-de-lis in the contour panels.

The only known artifact included in this type was found in the Ghazni area in 1957.
