Cult of Personality rugs with larger-than-life portraits of Soviet leaders were popular during this period. They were used mainly as wall hangings.

This rug features Vladimir Ilyich Lenin (1870-1924) in an iconic pose against a bold splash of red. Traditional Central Asian rug motifs make up the border.

The Cyrillic letters spell out: “V.I. Lenin”.

The last four photos show the reverse side of the rug.
