The ascending meandering trees present a great sense of movement and fluidity to the field design, and supports the intricately drawn vases which in turn issues blossom which are drawn and coloured in such away as to give depth to the pattern elements,  The colours used ensure that the composition is presented to maximum visual appearance. The colours include varying subtle tones of red, pale plum, pale blue, saffron and beige and in the main field area are presented on a magnificent cream ground.
