A very unique rug featuring a detailed profile view of a Soviet aircraft in camouflage. The plane reads '92' on the side with a red star on the back tail fin. Russian (?) letters are written in black above the aircraft. Multicolored geometric figures and flowers fill in the negative space around the plane.
The small zigzag of the fringe adds a touch of intricate detail to the rug.
