Description

The central figure, wearing brown harem pants and a red vest, could be a Kougouli (or Cougouli); these Turks lived in Algeria, the results of mixed marriages. Or, the figure could be a Turkish soldier. The hairstyle of the character in the background with a light green short jacket, is also that of a Cougouli.
