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:

Lampas_Polychrome

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:
