ناصرالدین میرزای ولیعهد - اثر کمال الملک
This is a funny looking portrait of the Crown Prince Naser al-Din Mirza, who became one of the long serving rulers of Iran. He nearly ruled Iran for 50 years. The creator of this work is Kamal-ol-molk. Based on Kamal-ol-molk's age, this work has been created after the prince was already a king, and is perhaps based on the previous work of some other painter.
