Circle Band 03 consists of a band of connected open circles bound by a plain band above and below it. A horizontal dash band runs along the circle centers and two vertical “ticks” are placed at the center of each circle creating a dashed cross appearance inside each circle.
The genre for this stylistic element depends on a combination of decorative technique, color, and element.
