War rug: collage of 7 paintings from the series 'Weapon: Other', unusual murder weapons.
War rugs were first woven when Russia occupied Afghanistan in the eighties, visualising tanks, helicopters, hand grenades, kalashnikovs, etc. The distinctive characteristic of these rugs is their capacity to convey their makers' experiences and interpretations of the circumstances and politics of war and conflict in the region.
