frame

Carved wooden frame. Rectangular wooden frame, with a carved figure on a horse sitting on the top. The figure holds a large sword in one hand. The other arm is missing. The frame has a sliding cover on the front, carved in relief with two birds. The cover has a tab on the side, allowing it to be pulled partway out. The wood has warped, so the cover cannot slide out completely.
