This is a very pattern-centeric rug. White planes are arranged in circles making them look almost like snowflakes on a navy blue background. The borders are composed of both cluster bombs and ready-to-eat meals, both items
airdropped by the United States in Afghanistan and unfortunately the same color.
Selvedge edges of the rug are rolled.
