Description:Full length studio shot of five men in traditional clothes with military elements. All of them are wearing fur caps and they are carrying many weapons: swords, long rifles, guns, and bandoliers. Two of the men are lying on the floor and one is kneeling behind artificial rocks. The other two are standing. A painted canvas backdrop is creating the illusion of the scene being set in a park.
