One might think of Floral Medallions as a single flower viewed from above—a plan view of a flower without stems. Floral Medallions are most often painted on the interior bottom of a teabowl, bowl, or saucer.
The genre for this stylistic element depends on a combination of decorative technique, color, and element.
