|A brown and blue rug depicting Ahmad Shah Masood praying in the foreground, with cars, trees, and helicopters in the background. This rug appears to be a copy of the rug in this photograph and is evidence of the feedback loop where public discussions of war rugs lead to reiterations of previous designs.
