          Hunting was the particular pastime of the English merchants in which fellow Europeans, Turkish officials and the Beduin ‘King of the Arabs’ were invited to participate. After the hunt, lavish picnics would be eaten in tents. Hunter sits in full Turkish dress , surrounded by his trophies of the day, held aloft by his Christian, possibly Armenian, servant.
