Trellis Band 08


Repeating double-lined Xs with dash decoration in the interstices characterize this band. A single dash is painted in the upper and lower open triangular spaces made by the Xs while groups of four dashes (forming either an “X” or a cross) fill the open diamond-shaped spaces. This band is identical to Trellis Band 05 except that it has dots instead of dashes.
