Screen (type 7a)

Screen (with rounded top) carved in bas-relief on both sides (type 7a). This type is represented by one specimen. Its interpretation as a transenna is based on the rounded top, which parallels screen type 7; however, the back is left plain.

The decoration is composed of one section with scrolls ending in a dragon and deer, probably part of a waq waq motif or as tails of a seated lion.

The artifact was purchased at Ghazni in 1958.
