Graham Gower has referred me to Vugar Dadashov, who is at the Sheik Safi website for Caucasian Rugs (the specific entry for this rug is here). This remarkable figurative commemorative rug from Azerbaijan shows how widespread is the rug tradition which allows for visual commentary on the experience of war.

Vugar writes “It is a very special rug, 60 years old, which was made after the Second World War, commemorating the survival and return of a family member. The date is 1945.
