    I also have an Islamic Prayer Board that I bought at a car boot sale and it is about four feet long with a round, carved area at the top. My one comes from the Swat Valley, North-West Frontier Province of Pakistan (I believe) as it is similar to one i saw on the Powerhouse Museum website. That one is made of Himalayan Cedar and dates between 1850 and 1900.
