Aristocratic Tibetan family

Tibet in the 1930s: Theos Bernard's Legacy at UC Berkeley

Aristocratic Tibetan family

This family is posing for a portrait in what looks like the courtyard of a home. The flat yellow hats worn by the father and son indicate their status as Tibetan government officials. The mother's headdress and the servant in the background further confirm their membership in the aristocracy. They all wear the traditional long-sleevedĀ chuba (robe).
