archway

Part of a carved wooden archway. This part consists of two pieces of wood one wider than the other, joined together at a right angle. Both pieces have a simple slatted design on the outside and appear to be made of a soft wood, rather than teak like the majority of the arch. This piece fits on the top left of the arch, between parts 12 and 25.
This piece is opposite to part 35, but the long piece of wood is shorter, with only a small slat of wood protruding from this section and making up this length. Part 34 appears to fit in this space as is the same depth and holes left by screws seem to match up. Part 34 is intricately carved and there is not such a piece connected to part 35 to mirror this.
