Object:"Bulgarian soldiery"
Description:Full length studio shot of five men. One of them appears in plain city clothes, while the other four are wearing military uniforms and overcoats. One of the latter, also wearing a hat with a cockade, is lying on the ground with his right arm and head propped up against an artificial rock. Two of the men in uniforms are seated. The men on the very left and on the very right are both wearing fur caps and bandoliers, and they are holding long rifles (the one standing has a bayonet attached to his weapon). A painted canvas backdrop is creating the illusion of the scene being set in nature.
