Dressed in the battle finery of those times, is this Sikh with a flowing
beard and upturned moustaches. The clear eyes gazing at the painter and a
smiling expression believe his profession. He holds one sword upright in his
left hand while his right hand reaches out towards the hilt of that tucked
at his waist. Various bands go criss-cross over his chest. He wears a yellow
vest, topped by a blue coat. The turban also of the same color combination,
is of the color of the 'Khalsa', a band of army men trained under the tenth
Guru of the Sikhs.
As much as there is refinement in the features, the artist falters at the
modeling of hands and feet, or that more than one artist was involved in
painting this portrait.
