Description

The loom beaded panel has long yarn fringes in pink and green that probably acted as ties. The beaded panel has a pink field with two blocks of decoration. There is a red cross outlined in black with yellow ray-like stepped triangles outlined in dark blue. Small blue triangles are outlined in black at the short legs of the red cross. The large red triangles with jagged ends are outlined in black on either side of the red cross. The pink arrow inside is also outlined in black. A black line with short black bars crossing it separates the two design fields.
