Costumes in the Reliefs of Taq-i-Bustan, Plate VII

The Boar Hunt, Detail of Secondary Mahout

All the mahouts wear trousers and high boots and the majority are clad in what appears to be a short tunic or one that is rolled up above the knees. An over-skirt is gathered up on the sides and tucked into and over the belt to allow for greater freedom of movement (Pl. VII). Here too, the garment seems to be of a light, soft material that falls easily into folds.
