Tila Kari Madrassa
Can someone please provide information on the wooden screens in Tila Kari Madrassa? I want to know whether they are made in fret work or dowelling technique called "pinjra"?

Naela, Then perhaps you could help me with a puzzle, when I visited Tashkent in 1979, in the history museum I photographed two wooden prayer book mounts, one open in an X shape and one folded flat. Clearly these book mounts were very complex to make, but how were they made?
