Graham Gower’s donation to British Museum

While looking at Luca Brancati’s war rug Pinterest I discovered a
rug in the collection of the British Museum which was donated by Graham Gower in 2010.

The most similar rug, that I have seen, to the rug above is this beautiful rug from the second iteration of the Weavings of War show which traveled the US from 2005 to 2007.


Graham Gower donated some other gems too.

About Kevin

Kevin Sudeith is the war rug collector who built warrug.com. After starting to collect Afghan rugs, he began selling regular and war rugs to better study war rugs and their historical origins. Sudeith learned how war rugs related to traditional Afghan tribal and workshop rugs as well as the broader Turkmen and Persian rug traditions.
