A large Afghan War rug measuring 6 ft. 7 inches x 3ft.7 inches and comprising of three decorated panels and bordered with stylised military badge motifs (epaulettes?). The design of this rug mixes peace – symbolised by showing of mosques, with war – seen through the array of military equipment. Also to be seen are tree lined streets. Dated to the invasion period. Probably Taimani.
