It basically consists of geometrical patterns
•Circle: representing the sun and the moon
•Triangle: triangle derived from mountains and pointed trees
•Square: indicating a sacred enclosure or a piece of land. So the central motive in each ritual painting is the square
These geometric figures are joined together to form beautiful patterns .Like two apex of triangles are joined together to form a human figure.
