"HINDOO COSTUMES, MAURITIUS.  From nature by Heine.   Figures by Brown.  F.S. Duval & Co., Philadelphia."
In addition to the costumes portrayed, the figures at left seem to be engaged in prayer, perhaps after  ritual ablutions; men and women each in their own territory.  Rich sepia coloring, and a very nice tree at the left, in from of an imposing rock.
Image area 9" x 5 7/8"
