Again, a Gower Collection contribution. Graham comments:
A town view showing cars and military vehicles driving down a tree lined street. A diagrammatic style of weaving. Note the armoured vehicle with a wheel missing, possibly indicating damage. The upside down cars probably mean they are travelling in the opposite direction! A rug with a clean and balanced design and most likely a product of one of the Peshawar refugee camps. Dated to the early 1990s. Size 2ft.7 inches x 5ft. 1 inch.
Nigel comments: when I have a moment, I’ll be posting a street scene of Herat (identified by its inscription) which appears to show the same row of buildings, and again, a busy street scene. But this one has the brighter colours (could they be any brighter? one asks…)
