Design consists of human heads; affronted pairs of birds, candelabra tree motifs with rosettes, and jar-like motifs from which stem pairs of affronted animal heads, woven with yellow, green and blue wool and natural-colored linen. Worn and patched. Probably a fragment of a hanging. Design shows Sassanian influence.
