Description:Full-length shot of a man wearing a police and judicial uniform with a cross of merit (Order of the Cross of Takovo of the third rank) around his neck. He is resting his right arm on a carved wooden table upon which a book and a cap have been placed. In his left hand he is holding a pair of folded white gloves, a sabre and a scabbard.
