This print showcases a Zouave, a member of the esteemed light infantry regiments in the French Army during their colonial rule in North Africa from 1831 to 1962. Known for their distinctive attire, this Zouave is adorned in a short open-fronted jacket, baggy trousers, and an oriental headgear, complete with sashes that add an air of elegance to his ensemble. The hand-coloured lithograph Parisian costume plates from the mid-19th century beautifully capture the essence of this unique military uniform. Originating from Algeria and initially recruited solely from the Zouaoua tribe, these brave soldiers played a significant role in France's colonization efforts across North Africa.
