|A prominent war rug aficionado and I have been trying to ID this building. I have been convinced that it is specific place. This rug is supple, the wool is soft and shiny. 1980s. Good drawing especially of secondary image weapons. Excellent tanks.
UPDATE: Building is perhaps a series of dome-shaped houses in perspective behind elongated yards and trees (the long 'stripes' below the triangular shapes).
