Unusual Large Plateau Contour Beaded Bag

I have never seen a contour bag like this before. The colors in this bag are wild. It has a large central mandala-like flower with large three-lobed figures in each corner. The central "flower" is done in pink beads, with each "petal" having a root beer colored oval center and  a single line of forest green beads that outline each "petal". Between each pair of "petals" is an orange triangle with a red and turquoise bead striped base.  The background of the bag is a smoky blue bead. The edging and back are golden brown corduroy and the lining has a busy red floral pattern. What a great bag!
