The exterior of the small, relatively tall bowl is decorated with brightly colored paint. It has a tan field and two repeats of a design: the facing left has three white triangles with black tips, a vertical light purple line, and a row of three bright orange triangles, nested against three blue triangles that form a slight arch. The semicircle in the created space is filled with white, red and black. There is a bright pink vertical line. The design ends with two more elements that mirror each other. The top is a green and blue triangle with white semicircles. The bottom is a yellow and pink triangle with white semicircles.
