|This rich rug depicts the Minaret of Jam in Afghanistan. The structure sits in front of tall mountains made up of stipled reds, greens, and browns and sits on a green field. To the right of the structure sits a smaller brown structure with a view inside. Six brightly colored squares sit inside.
The colorful red, blue, and amber tufts along the fringe add a really unique accent to the rug.
Very good. Nice, unusual border.
