|This large world map rug features very detailed and well drawn depictions of the countries of the world labeled in english. The map features latitude and longitude lines, as well as the names of the oceans. Surrounding the map is a border composed of the flags of the world again labeled in english. The rug is signed at the top in a red box.
Below the map the continents of the world are featured in their own squares (not in proportion). The blue used for the water in the rug is a great abrash and gives a lot of depth.
There is a large orange stain in the center of the rug.
