One to two horizontal bands bound the main pattern, which consists of double diagonal lines that are crossed by a thin, undulating line (these diagonal lines can be filled with color). Small leaves are painted along the undulating line. There are also leaves or some other type of foliage at the point where the double lines intersect with the top and bottom horizontal bands. One variant of this band also has thin leaves painted between the two diagonal lines (bottom left). With its undulating line, Botanical Band 7 is similar to a garland. Since horizontal bands bound it, it’s considered a band.
