Mother Tuleu. Illustration for A. Nurpeisov's Book Blood and Sweat. 1980–1981 yrs.
A close-up of a three-quarter turn shows the face of an elderly Kazakh woman in a white kerchief that covers the eyes from the sun with the palm of her hand. Her gaze is strained, expectantly directed to the side. The character's face is contrasted in two parts - the upper one is immersed in the shadow, and the lower one is lit by the sun.
