    Different, separately placed flowering plants, in parts botanically specific. Between the plants are small birds and insects. All design has fine, purple outlines and some red details. The ground is white.

    The reverse shows less dye saturation than the surface. The fabric is very densely woven from fine thread. If the textile is of Indian origin, it shows strong Mughal influence.
