About the design:

A second pair of eastern style dragons made from “medallions”, circles of various sizes that contain abstract designs. These two are steppe spirits. “Steppe” is another word for grassland or prairie, though it is most often used to refer to the large swath of grassland across northern Eurasia. The individual names of the designs are genera (a scientific category) of grasses that can be found in steppes. The common forage or ornamental fescue species are Festuca grasses. Stipa species are also used as forage for livestock and sometimes as ornamental grasses.
