The bowl's decorative panels contain six different geometric designs, each appearing twice, in opposing panels.
This inlaid bowl has interlacing geometric designs in 12 arched panels that radiate from a star on the base. A pinwheel of six fish is engraved in the interior. Scholars recently reattributed them to Islamic manufacture, possibly for export to Europe.
