Portrait of Thakoor Lukdeer Singh, a Rajpoot chieftain of Ulwur Early 1860s
The photographer has developed this powerful portrait by seating Thakoor Lukdeer Singh against a plain background. His full body is tightly wrapped by the quilted garment and its silk catches the light. The jewels, shield and sword point to the sitter's social standing and make this image all the more striking.
