New, contemporary production from 2004. A representational motif comprised of trucks, trees, buildings, and landmines is depicted twice in the rug. Six trucks drive on a blue road across the composition, above which sits an underground view of the road above containing different objects (land mines?). Five trucks drive across this road, with a blue tree between each. Six buildings sit in the background on a red field.
The main border is a red, blue, and maroon pattern of alternating pound symbols, triangles, and diagonal shapes on an off-white field. The guard stripes are a black and red alternating diagonal cord-like pattern flank the main border.
