Lampas Design #2 (Polychrome)

I’m only going to do two lampas designs, since they are taking even longer than I anticipated to weave.  So, a monochrome and a polychrome (multi-colour).

I’ve decided to do this pattern for the polychrome, probably repeating twice in the width:


From Ostaus, Giovanni. La Vera Perfezione del Disegno, 1561
Recharted and mirrored

The background will be white, with dark green and red, and either yellow or gold for the acorn.

I think it looks very similar to this textile in the bottom left of this picture:
