This new war rug is in excellent condition. This is a classic example of folk art at its finest. For centuries, the Baluch have woven the same three medallion pattern seen in this rug. Inside the medallions are poppies. The traditions of the rich blue color, the multiple, alternating sized borders, and the medallions have been passed through time from generation to generation. This nomadic Baluchi weaver didn't stop there, however. She dated this rug by images she sees on a daily basis, and thereby changed a pattern used and seen for centuries. Throughout this war rug, there are images of helicopters and tanks. They are stylized and cleverly juxtaposed with the traditional elements of their rug weaving designs. An example of this unique way of juxtaposition can be observed with a traditional motif seen in rugs, a comb used in the weaving process, incorporated into the tail of the stylized helicopter. A guaranteed conversation starter, this war rug is perfect for a home or office.
