This red and orange prayer rug features a series of 6 helicopters landing on what appears to be some sort of buildings or gardens. Running down the middle of the rug is a series of medallions, perhaps also gardens, connected by a geometric stripe and branches of leaves.
Geometric Greek-pattern inspired adrskni mihrab running around the field is interesting, cutting off the top two corners of the field.
This is an overall solid and good quality rug with a lot of interesting features.
