This is a newer 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. Bright oranges and reds pop from the rug.
Abstracted horseback riders carrying rifles are the primary motif of this rug. The riders become more abstracted as the eye travels from the bottom of the rug upwards, where the top figure missing its head. An assortment of birds and other animals fill out the rest of the field.

This is another rug offered for the first time in late 2021 which were collected by warrug as examples of styles, patterns, and variations of designs.
