The condition of this new Afghan war rug is excellent. It is densely woven with strong wool.
The Farsi text on the top of this rug makes it extremely rare, to the point this is the only one we have seen. The older rugs of this style said in Farsi, ""The army of the Soviets is leaving Afghanistan."" There are a few rugs from 2002 that said, ""The army of the Taliban is leaving Afghanistan."" But this rug appears to say, ""The army of al qaeda is leaving Afghanistan.""
This rug is an example of the Soviet story sub style of the small Afghan map war rugs. This rug is a transitional piece between the Soviet story rugs and the ""War on Terrorism"" rugs.
This style of rug has been fairly plentiful for the last couple of years, and warrug.com searches for unusual and atypical examples of this kind of rug. The Farsi text on this rug makes it extremely unusual.
Until the US eliminated the Taliban regime, this style of rug was woven by refugees in Pakistan. After we drove al qaeda and the Taliban back to the age of the Cave Man, these weavers were able to return to their native homes and produce these rugs around Mazar I'Sharif and Sherberghan.
