From our World Handicrafts Collection (Ex-Asia), a very interesting Afghani hand-made tribal rug decorated with American military helicopter and B-52 bomber motifs. This piece was acquired about 16 months after the American military campaign in Afghanistan was launched in response to the 911 attacks, and in a fascinating example of art imitating life, the villager who crafted this rug chose to fashion it in this manner, reflecting the military aircraft he/she no doubt saw in the sky day after day. A very interesting and probably unique piece reflecting a defining moment in world history; we have not seen another like it. Wool manufacture with natural mineral dyes.
Size and Condition: 62 inches long, 38 1/2 inches wide. Excellent condition, no notable flaws.
