Ndzhawu ya xisirhelelo yi avanyisiwile hi tikotara totshuka e henhla nale hansi, wa wasi eximatsini nale xineneni, laha kunga tlhela ku vonakisiwa xihambano xa rihlaza lexi tsemakanyaka xiri na kobasa laha makumu. Eka xihambano kuna lozenge (xibokisani xa diagonal), lexinga rihlaza na xona, na khuwani exikarhi.

Bilomu ra sunflower riyimela vurimi endzhawini liya, laha mabilomu yati sunflowers ya byaleriwaka ku xavisiwa. Yitlhela yiyimela ku vangama ka dyambu leri lavekaka ku humelerisa swibyariwa.
