This magnificent antique Window Panel originates in the Orient. It was beautifully carved out of Red Sandstone / Brownstone and has amazing pierced details. It is very difficult to date these kind of Window Panels - also called Jali Screens. This one was most likely made in the 17-18th Century and originates from the Mughal dynasty in India (it can also be a older and from a different part of the Eastern World). It features lovely geometric designs and has some leftovers of the original Chalk / Lime which was used to paint the Window frame once.

Screens like this, typical of Oriental architecture, were used as windows or interior room dividers, allowing light and air to enter the room while screening the inhabitants from the glare of the sun and the gazes of passersby. The intricately carved design would have created a subtle play of shadow and light in the interior, emphasizing the characteristics of symmetry and the illusion of infinity inherent in geometric design.

Condition: Some minor chips. Beautiful Patina and some leftovers of the original Chalk. In very good condition.

Size: circa 15 by 10 1/2 by 2 inches
