A rectangular brown and beige tapestry is oriented with the longest side vertical. At the top, there is Coptic writing in the center, on either side of it a U-shaped symbol with a horizontal line through its center, and at either end of the top section a cross-like symbol. Below are two brown horizontal rectangular bands, the edges lined with red and green. Four brown squares occupy the center of the tapestry on beige fabric. Another two brown bands are near the bottom, but the colors are less vibrant as they seem more worn. The bottom section of the tapestry has more Coptic writing at the center, an ankh symbol on either side, and the same cross symbols as before at the ends.
