It is heavily embroidered with silver tarnished metallic thread, the animals have glass eyes. It has small mirrors for reflecting the candle light. Some are falling off or missing. It depicts mythical beasts, Foo Dog, Deer, Peacock, and a urns in each side. The right end has some wear and tear. It is done with the couching stitch. It has some dark spots I believe from incense. It measures 137 inches long x 25 ½ inches wide. It has some wear along the bordered, the trim is worm off.
