Afghani Prayer Rug - part 2

I have acquired a 2013 edition Afghani prayer rug. Photo at left, it features a map and many of the weapons and vehicles you might encounter in-country.

Now, there is a nice symmetry to this rug - it makes a pair to the one I wrote about in 2008, and that already decorates Hawksbill Cabin.

That one was made in 2002, the first year of our conflict there.  This one was made in 2013 - let's hope that this is the next-to-last, if not the final, year of our conflict.

There are other aspects of the symmetry, too, but I'll leave them for another post.  For now, I can't wait to see the two rugs together.
