The description below is for another rug. Which one?

This is the best Chechen war rug I have seen. The design and square format complement each other perfectly. This rug does not have some of the funkiness of some Chechens like uneven borders. This rug lays flat, is square, the borders are all even. Chechens are the strongest war rugs I know. Very densely knotted with Turkish knots. These rugs will wear like nails.
Regarding design. Colors go well together. I like the strong red with the soft cerulean blue in the main medallion. The drawing of the tanks is nice, they look low slung and fast. Incorporation of vases, sugar bowls, and rockets is great.
