agree  xxx------: Could it be a kind of carved wooden latticework? I searched for opening+harem. Orejera comes from oreja not because of the form but of the function. It has to do with eavesdroppers.

  -> I don't think so. What you mean "celosía". Vanos de orejeras refer to the decorated stone that surrounds a window in some old Spanish buildings.
