This is a picture of a Jomista mat.

What do you notice?

What different shapes can you seen?

How would you describe what you can see?

What patterns stand out for you?

Can you see how the white and brown 'bands' interleave?

Perhaps more importantly can you see how has this Jomista mat
been made?

Can you make one yourself?

Do the symmetrical aspects help? Or make it more
difficult?
