Description
Literature

A complex arrangement of shapes and colors. The center is made of four smaller squares combined to make a large square. Each edge of the square is bordered by a small green patterned triangle that is connected by its tip to a yellow patterned half circle. Each half circle ends at each of the four sides. Four small white squares fill in the corners and they are flanked by two smaller green patterned triangles. The triangles merge together by their inside points where they touch the top corner of a small square arranged in smaller white and yellow patterned checks.
