The large abstracted drawings on this carpet combine with the primary colors to give the rug a very graphic feel. A large rifle runs up the left side while cruise missile launchers, a helicopter, a vehicle-mounted gun, and smaller weapons fill out the right. A row of round grenades frames the top and bottom of the composition. A classic multicolored bullet border marks the edges.
