The small, wide bowl has an orange field. A decorated band covers the outer sides. It is divided into two blocks and each repeats once. One block has black triangles in the facing left corners and a brown rectangle with a long triangle pointing toward the facing left. The field color is visible between these elements and in the triangle inside the brown rectangle. The second block is a black field with two orange semicircles.
