|This rug features a detailed lion with two king-like figure busts above and below. Medallions sit in the green spandrels as well as throughout the red field. The lion is colored naturally, except for the blue tuft on the end of his tail.
The border contains small multicolored flower shapes.
This is another example of a rug from Warrug's collected rugs being offered for sale for the first time in late 2021. This rug gives context to Afghan political portrait rugs, Amman Ullah Khan (AUK) rugs, and our favorite, Lion Rugs.
