Description

Three pictures of a carved round gourd covered with various geometric shapes. The background is small short lines all over. The first picture shows two hands together with fingers between fingers, giving an appearance of how a rug can be weaved.The hands are within a star, which is in a circle. Two geometric figures stand on either side of the circle. The second picture shows a rectangle with figures inside holding serrated objects horizontally. The rectangle has two figures on either side. The third picture shows a rectangle with figures horizontally. On the right side, there is a figure. You can see this is the same one from the first picture with the circle and star on the far right.
