After the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979 a completely new "genre" of rugs entered the market. These depicted battle tanks, helicopters, fighter planes, hand grenades, rifles etc, as the weavers tried to weave into their rugs what they were seeing around them. Moving slightly away from this, it was not uncommon to see uniformed generals depicted in some of the rugs.And in the same tradition, when unarmed combat like judo and karate became very popular, scenes of such combat also began to be woven into the rugs. After the Afghan weavers had taken the liberty to show military hardware in their rugs, some began weaving landscapes and palaces in their rugs as well.
Though these rugs and those showing tanks and helicopters etc are not being woven today, some of these may still be found in the market.
