The condition of this new war rug is excellent. This is a wonderful example of an Afghani pictorial war rug. The hand represents the Soviet-puppet government and its invasion of Afghanistan. The images of the women and children seeking refuge is beautifully depicted and accurately shows all the faces of war, from the tanks and fighter jets displaying USSR logos, to the mujahadeen fighting the communist leader with the red hammer and sickle painted on his forehead, to the families being forced to leave and few to return, some with nothing, others with only their animals. The drawing on this war rug is incredible, to say the least. Its colors and images are provoking and honest and the text is dramatic. This war rug is sure to evoke the thoughts and wonderment of collectors and non-collectors alike. A guaranteed conversation starter.
