Hatched Line Band 02

Stylistic Genre:

The genre for this stylistic element depends on a combination of decorative technique, color, and element.


Characterized by repeating diagonal lines that are drawn in one direction of a section of the rim, and then drawn in the opposite direction. This band can either have a shaded background or no background. Note that Hatched Line Band 03 is similar except it is only drawn in one direction (as far as one can tell).
