This ornament is based on the stone relief carving which was found in the Assyrian city of Nineveh.

The relief comes from the 7th century BC and is a fine example of the use of the lotus as a symbol during the Neo-Assyrian period. This ornament is often seen as an example of the Assyrian art in books that deal with art history or history of ornaments.

It consists of a frame border with the main motif of the lotus flower, and a square containing an ornament which takes the lotus as the main motif as well. Depending on your needs, you can use the entire ornament, only the frame border, or just the ornament found in the square. The Assyrians took over the lotus symbol from the ancient Egyptian culture where the lotus symbolized the sun, creation and rebirth in Upper Egypt.
