Carved Architectural Panel in the 'Beveled Style'

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 451

This panel is decorated in the Beveled style. This motif, which was primarily used to carve or mold stucco for the extensive wall surfaces of palaces in Samarra, was also found on wood, stone, glass, and other media. The Beveled style on these panels shows the creativity of Samarran craftsmen, who transformed vegetal motifs into abstract designs.
