This war rug is extremely well knotted. The wool has a very good, soft feel to it with an even pile. There are several factors in this rug that any one of them alone would make this quite the collectors' item, but combined, really sets this war rug apart from the pack. The figures in the bottom left are of Afghan women in burkas, presenting an almost asexual human form. These silent testimonies of oppression along with the expertly drawn tanks are juxtaposed with the symbolic forms of the birds seen throughout this dynamic war rug.
Wool: The wool is well broken in with a soft and fatty feel. Sheen: The sheen is elegantly soft. Handle: Nicely floppy Selvedge: The selvedge had a goat hair overcast.

Warp Depression:45 degrees to Full depression
