The main field is greenish brown. In the center is a small square enclosing a man mounted on an animal, and surrounded by a circle. Lozenges and circles, each enclosing a cross motif, and beyond this is a narrow ornamental border. The design is woven with light tan colored wool which looks as if it might have been white when it was new.
