The composition of this cloth consists of two similar principal repeat registers. Each register contains two component registers. One has a sailing ship with masts, sails, small cabin, trailing dinghy and anchor in the upper and pavilion in the lower. Pairs of dragons confront each other either side of the pavilion while a tree-of-life on a mound with a pair of confronted lions appears between the pavilions. Birds perch on the lions’ backs. In the lower register a flower mound separates the sailing ships. Pairs of birds, fish, estuarine sawfish abound, many of the birds perched on the ship.
