Najibullah versus the Taliban
This is a Najibullah rug of a different quality from most that I have seen. It is not as finely woven and it does not use the 'Beljik' wool associated with Najibullah rugs.

Soviet Hand Rug with Red Water Buffalo and Man Leading Two Camels
The condition of this new war rug is excellent. This is a wonderful example of an Afghani pictorial war rug. The hand represents the Soviet-puppet government and its invasion of Afghanistan. The images of the women and children seeking refuge is beautifully depicted and accurately shows all the faces of war, from the tanks and fighter jets displaying USSR logos, to the mujahadeen fighting Najibullah with the red hammer and sickle painted on his forehead, to the families being forced to leave and few to return, some with nothing, others with only their animals. The child riding a donkey and the inclusion of a never-before-seen red water buffalo makes the drawing on this war rug incredible, to say the least. Its colors and images are provoking and honest and the Farsi text is dramatic. This war rug is a remarkably old way of telling a story.

Large Soviet Hand War Rug w/ Livestock #1
This new war rug is in excellent condition. This is a Soviet Hand Rug with Najibullah (the puppet leader of Afghanistan in the early 90Ęs). This is a fabulous war rug that has a map of Afghanistan with a hand reaching into the top with a soviet hammer and sickle, representing the communist puppet government. There is some text on this rug in Farsi naming the surrounding countries of Afghanistan. The images throughout are incredibly detailed, with sharp, colorful drawing of tanks, rocket launchers, hand guns, AK-74s, and helicopters, just to name a few. Another interesting point is its use of contemporary images with the traditional mixed in.

Some of the finer points of this rug, besides its super quality wool, would be the rug's nice colors and its lovely Farsi text.
