hi, I want to know the meaning of "wheellike scrollwork" in this passage? It is talking about chess queen. Is that some kind of clothes that hanging from horse or is that something beside the horse?
weellike=چرخ مانند
scrollwork= تزئینات طوماری شکل
The single Swedish queen (thirteenth century) now housed in
the Historical Museum of Stockholm sits astride a horse, with
wheellike scrollwork on each side. She, too, wears a kerchief covered
by a crown.
