This exquisite and possibly 16th-17th century architectural fragment of a smaller size arch is finely carved in bamboo motif at the outside frame. The inner latticework is composed of two sections of "Continuing" design on the two sides with a central fan- shaped lattice work holding a "Ruyi" symbol.
