Description: 
Colored lithograph showing a Nestorian man with walking stick in a mountain landscape. He wears trousers that appear to be a knee-length pair of shalwar or shalvar (Vogelsang-Eastwood p. 8) worn over leggings of the matching fabric. On his upper body he wears a coat, probably a caba (Shoberl 1845, p. 34) or qaba (Vogelsang-Eastwood p. 10) over a white tunic with a large folded over collar. He carries a dagger in his belt. His hat has a rounded crown that is close to the head and a contrasting twisted cloth at the brim. As for hairstyle, he wears it to mid-neck in the back and he has a full beard and mustache.
