The rectangular textile fragment is worked in a warm, medium pink with a set of three yellow lines that descend into off-white equilateral triangles at the base. The top border is a yellow band containing orange squares with four white dots in the middle, blue circles with lighter blue centers, and a two-toned green square. There is a yellow bowl of pink striped fruit with some greenery in the panel center, flanked by two off-white birds detailed in black. Beneath the bowl, opposing pairs of two-toned green or pink stepped garlands appear. Toward the left is a partial yellow cross with flared ends and blue details on the arms. Two human faces appear in the spaces between the cross arms, and a left-facing bird flanks the cross. Toward the right is a right-facing off-white bird with a blue wing.
