A now rare painting of tribal life amongst the Qashqa'i nomads of Fars Province, south-west Iran, by the well-known Qashqa'i painter, Bijan Bahadori Kashkuli and painted between 1928 to the 1980s.
Bijan Bahadori Kashkuli, who died in 2015, was a member of the Kashkuli taifeh of the Qashqa'i Confederacy, and who visualised the traditional culture of his people through his watercolours. They are now of historical significance.
