Ceramic pot that has a small base, then widens out to a broad shoulder and tapers again into a short neck and round opening that has a wavy edge. The entire exterior of the vase is covered in a very intricate geometric pattern in black and white. There are interlocking circles with "petal" shapes where they overlap and diamonds in the center, each filled with smaller geometric designs.
