This rectangular fragment has large spade-shaped palmettes filling each corner. The palmettes bear dark blue and red animals and birds on a cream/ivory background. The central dark blue medallion encloses an irregular, inscription-bearing green square. At the top and bottom center is a smaller inscription-bearing square with date palms extending from cardinal points; vertical palms divide the rectangle, and horizontal palms delineate the start of a new repeat wherein palmettes have dark blue background with cream/ivory animal figures.
