18th Century découpage panel in the shape of a closed altar piece including a central roundel decorated with interlacing letters whose stems form a central six-pointed star. The round inscription contains a verse from the Qur’an. In the middle of the upper arch, a round hook suggests that it was used as a wall hanging.
