This large war rug features long decorative fringes and Gul i'Barjista borders containing red and blue peacocks and poppies. The main composition features the Minaret of Jam in Afghanistan and the surrounding landscape of mountains and a river. Tanks and trucks drive down the nearby road up the rug while helicopters and planes drop bombs from above. Figures in the mountains shoot rifles at the helicopter.
The bomb-dropping motif is similar to this rug and the border technique and Jam Minaret imagery is similar to this rug.
