A series of connected half-circles suspended from a plain band. An oval with a filled circle inside each is located at the junction of the half circles. There is a curved line on either side of each oval and a small vertical “tick” descends down at the center, all of which create a “spearhead” effect.
The genre for this stylistic element depends on a combination of decorative technique, color, and element.
