Herati Design

"Mahi" or"Herati" (has its origin in Herat, ca. 16th century. "Mahi" is short for "Mahi to Hos" meaning "fish in the pond". A rosette is surrounded by a rhombus which is again surrounded by four bent leaves. The name "Mahi" meaning "fish" was given to this design because the leaves resemble swimming fish.
