About this item
This three-quarter length seated portrait shows a bearded man, described as the leading sheikh for Malay pilgrims. He faces right and looks up above the camera.
The man wears a dark-coloured outer robe over a shirt or thawb and a white turban on his head. On his left ring finger he wears a ring.
In the lower right corner of the scene an out of focus plant can be seen.
The negative has had hand-work applied, causing it to take on a soft-shaded paint-like quality in places. In particular the original background has been substituted completely, except for the carpet on which his chair stands. In addition, the men’s feet have been cut out of the frame.
