The design consists of aligned large-scale octagons and four-pointed star-shaped interspaces filled with leafy scrolls. Each octagon encloses pairs of regardant gazelles and non-regardant rabbits in mirror image against a foliate background, patterned in white on a light pinkish-tan ground. Framing the octagon is a Kufic inscription repeated in orthograde and retrograde around the central design.
