Screen (type 3)

Screen carved in bas-relief and with openwork decoration (type 3). This type is represented by one specimen.

The screen is framed on the four sides by a Kufic epigraphic band, enclosing the openwork panel. This shows a geometrical pattern with alternating hexagons and six-pointed stars.

Marble brackets (possibly two) sculpted from the same marble block are in the upper side.
The artifact was found re-employed in the Ghazni area in 1957.
