The central circles have a smaller circle within them that have equal-arm engraved elements that meet at a very small circle. There are hatched and cross-hatched widened areas on both sides of the central circles where the scrolls intersect them. Alternating with the central circles, and either above or below the engraved scroll line, are 12 large pendant triangles with hatched corners. In the center of each of these triangles is a single small engraved circle. A red clay pigment has been rubbed in the engraved lines.
