Yasser

This is my friend, Yasser. I needed a model for a painting I have in mind, and he was kind enough to oblige me. He's wearing a ghutra over his head. The long white garment is called a thobe, and the darker cloak is called a bisht.

I could imagine the picture of this man in this position, with these colors on the wall of a church - except the ball-imitating (?) slippers :). Is the string in his hand something that they use for praying?
This is a very hopeful photo, I'm curious to see the painting that you'll - insha'Allah :) - make on the grounds of it.

Can't wait to see your rendering of this.
