Vintage Afghan War Rug with Lions Elephants and Warriors 6 x 4 ft

About

Collectors item: Afghan War rug from the 1970s- This one of a kind Afghan Baluch War rug shows two different Armys confronting each other. On one side, riding on lions - the Mughal or Moghul / Mogul who invaded India in 1526, on the other side Rajputs from India riding on elephants. The Mughals came from the former Persian Empire and their tribal roots are in Afghanistan. Construction: This unique rug was hand knotted using fine handspun wool. It has wool warp, weft and pile. The dyes are organic and there are color changes from different batches of wool (Abrash), which is typical for tribal rugs. Carpets that are knotted on wool warp often don´t lay flat since the wool "works" within the foundation. On this rug, the left side is uneven and has some folds in it. Condition: This collectors item was rarely used on the floor - most of it´s time it was used as wall decoration. The condition is very good to excellent, only little wear visible. Size: It is about 6 x 4 ft.
