Description
Literature

Small rectangular shaped block. The pattern is made of three white triangles whose bases start at the top side and point towards the bottom. They are met in the center of the piece by black triangles that point up to meet their tips. The pattern of opposing colored triangles is repeated and finishes on the bottom side of the piece in black triangles that point towards the top. Light purple squares turned at an angle fill in the spaces.
