Other examples of this style
|This 'two ewer' war rug actually features multiple sets of ewers on tables alternating with imagery of abstracted tanks to create a complex pattern. The colors in this rug, although still bright, are all a bit tip faded which creates an interesting array of colors.
The border is composed of alternating patterned helicopters and tanks and the two guard stripes create a sort of green and orange 'rope'.
