|War Rug with Pomegranates, Vases of Flowers, and Poetry|
This blue war rug features orange tanks with bright green guns containing Farsi script, "TANK". Below the tanks reads perhaps some poetry. On the top and bottom edges of the rug sit tables with text inside, on top of which sit two ewers and vases with flowers (symbolizing fertility and abundance?). On either side of the table sit potted pomegranate plants with multicolored fruit hanging from the branches (symbolizing eternal life?). The negative space is filled with small medallions and red helicopters.
Green, red, and yellow tanks interspersed with rifles and small sections of text make up the border.
This rug features more natural colors than other similar rugs, however still remains bright and hasn't been bleached. The bright green accents pop against the blue background.
