Projecting wooden oriel/shelf or flush stone wall?[edit]

If this means a wooden oriel window, then the supposed example "File:La Aljafería - Celosía 02.JPG|thumb|Restored mashrabiya from the Aljafería palast (10th century), in Spain." can't be one. The etymology given from the word for "shelf" makes it clear that a non-projecting window doesn't fit the bill. Unless of course the term has broadened markedly. Anyway, something's wrong either with the definition or the example. Chiswick Chap (talk) 10:25, 15 December 2015 (UTC)
