|Dark Blue War Rug with Multi-colored Air Planes|
The brightly colored airplanes in the background of this rug make it stand out. The tanks are rendered in the classic "Ten Tank" style and colors, but the light planes make it really sing. The light blue colors are very nice and contrast beautifully with the dark field and its rich abrash. The way that lightly colored cars are dispersed around the border works very well and gives this piece a strong rhythm.

|Red Background Boxy Tank |
The deep blue base of this rug is intertwined with beautiful dark brown figures of planes and cars. However, the contrast provided by the bright pink threading is the real standout aspect of the rug. The vibrance of the pink gives life to all the images contained within its boundaries in a way that is incredible and adds greatly to the overall quality of this piece.
This rug is densely knotted with small singles and clipped long, so it has a dense, soft feeling.

|Yellow Highlights Ten Tank Rug|
Though one would think the dark blue used throughout the rug would make it an overall very drab piece, the use of bright threading throughout actually gives this piece a nice sense of liveliness. The 8 pointed stars on the border, flanked by the 8 pointed pink starbursts and the light brown chevrons also give the piece a beautiful sense of motion in an otherwise static piece

|Pink Field Ten Tank Rug|
With a deep blue border and muted reds and browns for the cars, this rug makes the center truly pop. The muted reds paired in the center with the bright pink thread form an intricate sequence of shapes and patterns that gives this rug a delightfully engrossing aesthetic.

|Spare Afghan Map Rug with Herati Border (Exhibition History)|
The red field in this rug is uncommonly spare. This rug has one very rare feature. Two blue beads are sewn into the selvedges: on the left hand selvedge, about half way between top and bottom, and on the right selvedge about one foot from top. The border is very traditional and a type not often found on Afghan province map rugs. There are no war motifs in this rug.
