Dot Plume Edge


This element consists of a scalloped rim with a band of raised dots along the rim and a band of plumage directly beneath. All the three portions are painted to varying degrees. *NOTE: like certain shell-edge patterns, the scalloped rim is not recorded but assumed to be inherent in the stylistic element.
