The man was about Dean's age, shorter, with dark hair and moustache and dressed in full biking attire.
The treatment of the hair, moustache and beard is extremely interesting in the study of oriental archaeology (see Muller, Meyer, opp. citt.).
I did have a talk with the fella with the silly moustache dressed in the undertaker's clothes.
A thin moustache is common, the beard, if present, is plucked out, and the hair of the head is black, coarse and cut short.
One contained in the Shah Jahan Nama - a gorgeous specimen of illuminated Persian manuscript and exquisite calligraphy - represents a most ordinary, middle-aged Oriental, with narrow black whisker fringing the cheek and meeting the tip of the chin in a scanty, pointed beard; a thin moustache sweeps in a semicircle from above the upper lip; the eyebrow over the almond-shaped eye is marked but not bushy.
The chin is never shaved, save by beauty men, or kashangs, though often clipped, while the moustache is usually left long.
Thickness of skin, masking the muscles, has been thought the cause of a peculiar heaviness in the outlines of body and face; the complexion varies from yellow-brown to chocolate (about 40 to 43 in the anthropological scale); eyes black; straight coarse glossy black hair; beard and moustache scanty.
Their bishops and priests, who wear the moustache in deference to popular prejudice, are typical specimens of the church militant.
