The artist created contrast on several different levels in this piece. The weaver used horizontal and vertical lines to add structure to the round, abstract forms. The horizontal lines are created to look like a primitive, loose-weave fabric. This is treated in a way that allows it to serve as a background to the rest of the colors.
It appears as if the other colors were painted onto the coarse fabric. The colors themselves also add contrast. The artist used areas of shade and highlight to give the piece visual depth and dimension. The artist created dimension and texture in another way, too.
