This new war rug is in perfect condition. This is a fascinating piece of folk art that not only couples a traditional art form, such as weaving, with contemporary images, tanks versus flowers, but also adds the traditional to the contemporary in terms of war rugs in particular. The image of the American and Afghan flags united by a dove carrying an olive sprig came directly from leaflets dropped on Afghanistan by our Special Forces, as well as the images of the pick-up trucks found inside the map. However, the trucks are usually also found in complete depictions on the leaflets, that is to say, next to the Tora Bora mountain range. The artist of this war rug took the traditional use of the Afghan map containing helicopters, tanks, and planes as well as the blessing for a long life to Afghanistan from the Soviet-era war rugs and added the contemporary image of the trucks to the scene. Where the term USA 2002 now stands, it once read USSR 1989. This war rug almost stands as a testimony to the history of Afghanistan starting from the Bolshevik years and ending in the 21st century.
