Rare white marble panel used as a decorative element in Indo-Persian architecture. The friezes have been carved from a single block of stone, and feature a high quality, deeply engraved pattern on both sides. The elegant, well-balanced linear interlacing of the geometric motifs deceives the monotony of the line in favour of a grating decorated with arabesques full of interlaced rhombi which merge around the edge with curvilinear plant shoots. The plant-shaped decoration is perfectly inscribed in the margins of an oval and the Mughal tribute to idealised nature, manifestation itself of Allah.
