The wooden panel is either from a minbar, or pulpit, or from a door.

It is decorated with a star pattern originating from a twelve-pointed star, in the center of which is an ivory six-pointed star.

Around this is an elaborate ivory inlay composition with designs resembling arrowheads together with stylized kindas or hexagons and lazat or four-sided polygons. Finely executed five- and three-lobed leaves are on the panels and a triple leafs as well.
