This unique rug features not one, but *four* maps showcasing Saudi Arabia, Iran, and other surrounding countries. This map is repeated three times, however for some reason the map in the top left is a mirror image and backwards. Below each map sits an image of an arrangement of different upside-down buildings. Above each map is a small pair of world maps with red oceans. Around each of the maps is a border consisting of the flags of what appears to be random countries, including the UK, USA, Afghanistan, the Netherlands, and others.
The top and bottom borders consist of what looks to be faded tan and brown tanks. A thick geometric border surrounds the rug as well as separates the quadrants of the four maps.
Probably used as a multi-person prayer rug, the political nature of the imagery on this rug is thought provoking.
