Musketeers, 1684-5


09   a royal bodyguard and a musketeer. The bearded bodyguard stands, legs crossed, with eyes cast downwards while resting upon his long musket. Small bags and a daggar hang from the sash tied around his waist. The musketeer stands opposite, with his equally long musket slung over his shoulder. A long sword and purse hang from his tied sash, while a feather protrudes from his hat.
