This red, gold, and blue large short pile rug contains interesting intricate designs of animals (lions, leopards, snakes, horses, camels, and other animals) and human figures interacting.
Some of the interactions include: figures riding horses, large snakes constricting leopards, ladies sitting with sheep/goats, hoofed animals being attacked by mean looking smaller animals, and various birds, camels, and four-legged animals standing alone.
