The motifs employed in contemporary Pipli applique work include stylised depictions of nature and wildlife and a few mythical beings. Elephants, parrots, peacocks, ducks, creepers, trees, lotus and jasmine flowers, half-moons, the sun, and Rahu (a mythical demon who devours the sun) are some of the more popular motifs among these.
