Chaban (shepherd) with fat-tail sheep.

The title of this image on the LOC website sounds unintentionally funny: “Fat Sheep. Golodnaya Steppe”. Literally: “Fat sheep. Famine Steppe”.

Hardly an artistic picture and not very interesting. Why did I restore it? I was born there and sometimes feel sort of nostalgia. It feels good to feel nostalgia for Central Asia being in Canada A modern shepherd over there looks pretty much the same, except under his sheepskin coat he now has a blue track suit “Abibas”.
