It appears as if the artist was using a thin ink that flows when the brush touches the paper. The placement of the lines that appear to almost touch somewhere off the edge of the page gently pulls the eye to the center of the work. The lines are roughly horizontal, but they are not created with geometric precision. Rather, they appear to be an expressive brushstroke of the artist.
The neutral colors of the carpet from Nepal transition through a series of earthy brown hues. A single line just below the midpoint of the design has a rose-tone, that is reminiscent of the colors found in florals. The form, flow, and feeling of this piece have and Oriental character that is similar to brush calligraphy.
