The two large geometric medallions line the center of this colorful rug. Two tripod-mounted rockets with script point towards more script in the center, while tanks with guns raised flank them. This is a very symmetrical and pattern-centric rug. The classic flowery border around the outside of the rug flanks the design. There are a few small spots of moth damage in the border, most notably in the bottom left corner.
