This view is all the more plausible considering the visibility of only four fingers and the lack of symmetry between the two sides of the face – features that are characteristic of leprosy.

So, for a European-Caucasian viewer, the painting might speak of acute and terminal stages of tuberculosis.

The decision to use only one of the primary colors, that is black, the author somehow minimized the costs, as when people look at the body of the image. He used minimal black color in his paintings and light intensity too which was also equally low. In this way,
