The overall geometric design consists of diamonds pieced together at the corners to create smaller squares radiating around a larger, central square. The diamonds are delineated by black borders and filled alternately with small yellow and orange mosaic pieces. A large square in the center is filled with a four-petalled, white flower on orange background. A triple border surrounds the central geometric panel, consisting of a braided ribbon in shades of orange, black, and white; a crowstep pattern in black; and a plain black band. The piece has several cracks throughout, with a small triangular piece missing on the right.
