Visual Description : A runner that has patterns resembling Native American designs. The colours of this runner are brown and orange, blue, and green. There are three borders surrounding the central area. The first border, from the outside inwards, is a series of small circular images, possibly flowers. The background of this border is brown along the length and alternating blue and cream along the width. The border following is a series of patterns, triangular in shape, in the colours of beige, rose, green, and browns; and the background is cream. The colour scheme seems to change from either end of the runner. It appears as though the carpet was made with the same pattern, but different colours. The central image, again, uses triangular patterns with images of flowers and birds.
