B: Left sandal, is made of laced strips of blue and white batik with white diamond shapes trimmed with polychrome embroidery; each white diamond shape is decorated with a bead stitched on in the center. The sole is like "A" but this sandals is lined in light yellow and magenta leather. The carved heel is painted red and yellow with grooved diagonals in the back (and a bright blue dot); the rest of the carved heel is polycvhrome.
