Visigothic screeen plaque decorated with geometric and plant motifs

Rectangular plaque decorated with a central circular motif, a double concentric band around it and five-pointed star-shape in the interior. In the middle it has a circular four-petalled rose making a cross pattée. The spaces between the sides of the star and the circle are filled with a theme of overlapping arches in a kind of fretwork. The decorative theme of these plaques, with geometric and plant motifs, as well as some technical particularities in the carving of the stone, characterise it as art from the Hispano-Visigothic period and link it to the local sculpture of that era.
