Report about missing ʿAjami wooden panels from Bayt Ghazala (Aleppo)
The Aleppo Built Heritage Documentation Project, a co-project of the Syrian Heritage Archive Project, has been documenting all available data of the house Bayt Ghazala in Aleppo due to its architectural and art historical importance. It’s rich decorated wooden interior paneling, called ʿajami, is considered a highlight of the house. Sadly, the paneling was almost entirely lost during the last conflict in Aleppo!
This report presents most of the removed panels by using photos that were taken before September 2012, in order to prevent them from being illegally sold.
