Drones on rugs

Colors Magazine

Since the Soviet occupation in 1979, they have turned to symbols of war; helicopters, hand grenades, tanks. After 2001, the iconography has been replaced by military features of the United States invasion. And now there are even predator drones on rugs. An image series.
