Grumpy Camels with Tanks and Helicopters War Rug
10010 http://www.warrug.com/index5.php?idr=10010 http://www.warrug.com/index5.php?idr=888 This is a very unique and quirky rug most characterized by the rows of expressive camels along the borders on the top and bottom of the rug. In contrast, the center of the border is composed of trucks, helicopters, planes, and tanks.
The field shows a large pool of water in the center with gardens and buildings radiating out from the center.
Closely related to these two rugs in both style and in terms of the figures depicted: 10010 and 888. The camels are similar in shape as well as the combination of old cavalry with new.
There is unfortunately some moth damage on the bottom half of this rug.
Excellent with minor caveat. It has a couple of 5mm round dark spots on left side. That said this an example of the best quality Baluchi war rug. Minor sarnach.
Man in Front of Pool
This war rug is in perfect condition. It has nice oxidation and is very well crafted with top quality wool.
The rug contains an extremely unusual border and scene that every collector and non-collector alike is sure to find dramatic and fascinating. There is a Turkmen-looking man standing in front of a temple and before him lays a serene reflecting pool with beautiful, rare waterfowl. Subtly between him and the pool are small helicopters providing an eerie and hard to forget reminder of war.
