Image Description

A massive cup with a hexagonal rim, filled with water. The cup is pink with a gold vine design, while the stem features different patterns: waves, diamonds, and a sequence of lunar phases in an arc. The cup is flanked by two birds with pointy beaks and a diamond pattern on their breasts. Above the cup floats a crown. The crown is gold, pink, and blue with moons and suns on its points, and a letter A in the central sun. A leafy stem with a red berry dangles from either side of the crown.
