This fabulous war rug was woven in 1993. The colors are stunning, to say the least. The overall composition is lovely. One of the nicest things about this war rug is the artists use of an intriguing, rare pattern. Located in the border found just outside the very inner part of the rug is a pattern made up of grenades and poppies. The use of the grenades in this form makes the imagery almost hidden in plain site. Another example of the artists clever use of pattern can be found in the text. Usually, the Farsi text in these types of war rugs say -tank-, however, she took Farsi letters and instead wove them as part of the overall pattern. The same letters, which do not translate or spell anything, can be found throughout the rug, used in much of the same way that the birds and flowers are used. Another thing we would be remiss not to point out, and never before seen in this type of war rug, are the black rockets on either side of the tanks. There are two ewers found at the top and bottom of this war rug. These ewers are used in ritualistic cleansing before prayer. Please note the very interesting and stylized helicopters along the outside border which are only found in this two ewer style of war rugs. Needless to say, the artist of this war rug was extremely talented in not only design, but color use as well.
