This rug, like its mate of similar weave and design, #1484 is the most interesting contemporary rug I have seen. While the helicopters are somewhat non discript, these rugs speak to the International Coalition's actions in western Afghanistan like no other rugs that we have seen.

This rug appears to be woven by the same artist as rug #1484. Besides the similarity of design, the similarity of material is exact. Rug appears new without any floor wear. Fuzz still on back of knots. There is one condition issue of note: a two inch cut that runs above first palm tree on left side, just above red line over palm tree. Four warps are exposed for two inches, but the warps are unbroken. The wefts are broken and two columns of green and yellow marled knots are missing where cut is. Two columns of 11 knots each are missing. (I will repair this or have it repaired and make note here)

Wool: Wool is light and fluffy. Sheen: Good, shiny and new. Handle: Floppy Selvedge: Well done braided goat hair.
Fringe: Unwoven kilim ends closed by Persian closure, kinky fringe. Pile: 7mmWarp: 2S tan to grey wool, with touches of old kilim color.Weft: Double wefted grey and black cotton
Warp Depression:Slight warp depression
