|Abstract Horsemen Rug with Dark Border|
This is a new rug. Pile wool shows stray fibers which were missed by shearer's clippers. Lightest color is undyed wool. Cobalt blue field is contrasted beautifully by the dark Prussian blue border.
|Small Horsemen Rug with Tank, Bus and Helicopters|
The horsemen we find in this rug are one of the oldest images in carpets dating back to the oldest rug called the Pazyrik. In the Pazyrik the implication, when combined with the other image , a reindeer, is a hunting scene. In this rug I am reminded of a film interview of Ahmed Shah Masud. The interview was in French and when he was asked his favorite way to get around, ""A horse"", What is his favorite car? ""A horse"". New condition and apparently unused. Rug still has stray extra long pile threads which escaped the shearer's clippers. Moderately abstracted horsemen and images of Afghan buses, one tank, a series of riflesand two helicopters. Natural colored wool border with flower design. Very nice blue field color. Also note the peacocks scattered with guns and abstract designs throughout border.

|Mario Brothers Horseman Rug|
This is a great rug. The guys on horseback appear to have riding crops and not Kalashnikovs. The horsemen must be influence by Nintendo's ""Super Mario Brothers"". The drawings are too clear to be coincidence. A rug with a sense of humor, gotta love it.
This rug has a nice pattern, good drawing and attractive colors. The busy border contrasts nicely with the bolder field. The white vertical stripes ad graphic punch. The horse are beautifully drawn and show very powerful animals.
The blue field Is particularly deep and rich, and provides an excellent contrast to the lighter and brighter colors used in the motifs.
The staff at warrug.com has fought furiously to have this rug kept in the office.
The pile of this rug is longer and softer than most Herati rugs.
This is a rug about Afghan Mujahadeen cavalry. Men on horseback is a very old pattern both in Afghanistan and Iran. There are hunting rugs with men with swords and bow and arrow. There are portrait rugs of kings on horseback, as well as war rugs with men with Kalashnikovs on horseback. We have heard, but not seen, that there are rugs depicting US special forces on horseback. There was a unit of US who have reached mythical status in Afghanistan for the fighting they did on horseback in 2001.
This is an older, probably Pakistani rug, but it may be from northern Afghanistan. It is very finely knotted, it has nice colors, and it has good soft wool. The only drawback is that it needs to be washed.
|Bright Colored Hunting Afghan War Rug|
Very unusual design. Hunting rugs are a common Afghan style but helicopters make it unusual. Very fine wool and keen attention to abstract design.
