|This rug uses blue, orange, red, and browns to depict the Herat Mosque. A line of orange and red planes fly above the mosque, and two rows of trees grow underneath. The motif of this rug is sideways in landscape as opposed to running down the rug.
There aren't any main borders, however a guard stripe of red and white 's' shapes on a brown background borders the composition.
