|A small rug depicting former President of Afghanistan Hamid Karzai on a blue and off-white cloud-like field. 'HAMID KARZAI' is written in dark blue text under the portrait.
A blue, green, and red flower pattern separates the name and portrait as well as bordering the whole composition. A thicker light blue and off-white patterned motif borders the outside of the composition with a thin dark blue line on the edges.
This is one of a group of rugs that warrug.com has worked closely with over the years. This rug is one of a pair showing Hamid Karzai in traditional headdress. The green headdress represents his status as a religious leader.
