Default Decorative Style~ The Kastane.

Salaams all...

In observing further Kastane decorative style and refering to http://www.craftrevival.org/Extrali...PageCode=P00014 as a guide... perhaps the most relevant source of inspiration on design flows from the Piha Kheata form (both ways?) ...The two seem inextricably linked.
