Product Description

The soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979 moved Belouch weavers to depict in their rugs these machines of war. Later copied during the US/Allied invasions of 2003. This is an original from the 1980s, the motifs of tanks, rockets and bombers fill the ‘field’ in a repeating pattern. In excellent condition.
