This is a beautifully made and intricately designed rug. The imagery in this rug is detailed and well rendered the horses, antelope, large cats, birds, and other figures are well proportioned and intricately drawn especially compared to other similar horsemen rugs. The figures are dramatically posed; horsemen sit on their horses holding rifles, while antelope are ambushed by big cats. The border is composed of weaving vines and brightly colored leaves with large birds perched. Small medallions are visible in the center of the side borders as well as in the top and bottom.
There is unfortunately some small moth damage at the top of the rug, as well as some dark staining from before this rug was aquired by warrug.com
