Design for an interlaced geometric pattern made up of straps forming a seemingly continuous labyrinth of lines. The overall shape describes a vertical rectangle made up out of one framing figure and two interlaced figures within. On the vertical axis there are three knots; one on the top and one on the bottom of the figure, and a third in the middle with two large loops. The sides of the pattern are each characterized by two triangular knots formed by the overlapping straps.
