A young Changpa nomad wearing a homespun robe with a striped pattern standing up against a wall. He is wearing a simple necklace with a turquoise bead. His hair is in small plaits at the back and roughly chopped in a fringe at the front. The wall is a good example of building technique where the gaps around dressed stones are filled in with smaller stones.
