This rug was selected from several examples of similar scenes. This rug is notable and selected for its fine knotting, good colors, funky vehicle running along the bottom and writing. This is perhaps an variation of an excellent shown at Canada's Textile Museum (example). The short pile and dense knotting put this rug in small group of fine pictorial scenes. The red text in the upper right appears to say ""American"" in english text and Farsi is unreadable to this writer except for date. Also notable is the red, outlined in orange, rifle or grenade launcher in the bottom left corner. The vehicles running in a line in middle ground are intersting. They are like vehicles in this land mine war rug (example)
Wool: Wool is cut very short. Good quality, and it is solid and dense. The grey wool above cars is very beautiful.

the border and the short pile are like this important pictorial war rug. (example)
Sheen: Good, but underdevelopped because rug is recently woven. Handle: Thin and strong. Floppy but supple. Selvedge: Well covered end finish of tightly bound braided goat hair.
Fringe: At both top and bottom there are grey wool plain weaves closed by two strand weft float then short grey fringe. Pile: 3mmWarp: 2S grey woolWeft: Coarse grey cotton.
Warp Depression:Tightly knotted of small knots and short cut pile gives a strength and springiness that is not common to Baluch rugs from Afghanistan.
