A single plain band with a meandering band atop it. The meandering band is composed of closely-spaced “leaves” oriented in the same direction. A three-part stacked half-circle element is alternated with the meandering band, placed in the blank spaces between its peaks and troughs.
The genre for this stylistic element depends on a combination of decorative technique, color, and element.
