The condition of this new war rug is excellent. Its wool is hand spun and the sheen will be gorgeous as it oxidizes over time. This map of Afghanistan remarkably highlights the Tora Bora region in the east and the images on the tips of the mountains appear to represent the frequent bombings in the area as the U.S. hunts for Osama bin Laden. The drawings showcase many of the elements used in the war on terror: tanks, grenades, F-16s, Chinooks, and even a handgun. This piece of art in the form of a war rug is sure to please collectors and non-collectors alike. To put it in the words of a pilot who flew the jets over Afghanistan and recently called to order a Tora Bora war rug, ""It really gets across what we were doing over there"".
