The Kalmuck or Kalmyk is the name given to the Western Mongols who inhabit the North Caucasus Territory of Russia. The Kalmyks migrated from Dzhungaria to this area in 1607. In this scene two Kalmyk horsemen, one of which is holding a bird, ride up to three young women conversing with a man smoking a pipe.
