The horsemen we find in this rug are one of the oldest images in carpets dating back to the oldest rug called the Pazyrik. In the Pazyrik the implication, when combined with the other image , a reindeer, is a hunting scene. In this rug I am reminded of a film interview of Ahmed Shah Masud. The interview was in French and when he was asked his favorite way to get around, ""A horse"", What is his favorite car? ""A horse"". New condition and apparently unused. Rug still has stray extra long pile threads which escaped the shearer's clippers. Moderately abstracted horsemen and images of Afghan buses, one tank, a series of riflesand two helicopters. Natural colored wool border with flower design. Very nice blue field color. Also note the peacocks scattered with guns and abstract designs throughout border.
Wool: Light texture but soft and smooth. Sheen: Very good, especially in the blue and white horses. Handle: Very floppy Selvedge: Thick braided goat hair.
Fringe: Natural color wool plain weave with braide closure at top and shorter kilim at bottom with overhand knots and short fringe. Pile: Very long, 9mmWarp: Brownish grey woolWeft: Light blue grey cotton
