The design of the room size rug is balanced by the rectangular shapes and lines that feature groups of three design elements. The larger form is divided into three separate sections, which helps to enhance this theme. The artist emphasized horizontal movement on the outer sections, and balanced both horizontal and vertical movement on the intersection.
