The design is made up of a ribbon forming a vermicular pattern and splattered pearls over an abstract honeycomb shape rendered with stipples of dark reddish-brown color over a light tan base. The ribbon is of light tan color bordered with zig-zagging outlines of red color, and the pearls are of white color.
