Husk Chain Band 03



Husk Chain Band 03


A chain of arrow-shaped elements separated by two or three dots creates this band. The combination of arrows and dots almost gives the impression of streamlined birds flying in a circle.  It may have a thin plain band both above and below the arrows or the band may be “free floating”.  Note that arrows can be filled in, as in the second example.
