What type of chart is this?



I stumbled upon a family tree here called Chehebar. It is very aesthetic. Is there a name for this type of chart, or is this a pedigree presented differently?

This is a simple descendant chart, which shows the descendants of a particular person (Abraham Laham A"H). Another example of this is: enter image description here

A pedigree chart, or ancestor chart, is one that shows the ancestors of an individual, but not typically siblings or collateral lines, such as:

There are a number of other types of charts, and sometimes the different forms can be combined to show both ancestors and descendants.
