This artwork is part of Byzantium and Islam: Age of Transition

The highly stylized lotuses and palmettes on the panel are carved with slanted, beveled edges that unite the forms and the background into a continuous whole. This beveled style, widely used at Samarra, spread throughout the Islamic world.
