Mall Mural: Merchant

This painting is of an obviously wealthy Middle Eastern merchant. It is part of a group of lovely wall murals. The man depicted in the painting wears a turban, which many men in Saudi Arabia do, however the most common way men wear their headgear is folding the square scarf in half diagonally (into a triangle shape) and then letting it drape down on the sides and the back.
