The pattern is made of very small squares that are arranged in diagonals. Red patterned and purple squares are arranged in a stair-step diagonal in each of the four corners. They branch out and meet other red patterned and pink squares that form smaller diagonals in the middle. A single purple square is in the center of the piece. The background is made of small white squares.
