Are there many contemporary illustrations of Yuezhi (Yue-Chi) / Kushans?
Some I have found are on textiles woven in China, Syria or Bactria with embroidery by the Yuezhi/Kushans of Bactria: - Yuezhi men embroidered on three pieces of a carpet, Noyon Uul, Mongolia, after 120 BC
Similar to the shield of Fig. 3 (3) are - Pazyryk Culture Wood and Leather Shields, 5th century BC, Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg - Yuezhi spearman on a textile from Tomb No. 1, Sampula (Khotan Prefecture, Xinjiang), after 120 BC
Compare this to the - armour-bearer from the frieze of Khaltchayan Reception Hall, 50 BC-50 AD, north Bactria

Druzhina - Scythian, Saka and Sarmatian Illustrations of Costume and Soldiers
and Pazyryk Culture, Yuezhi, Parthians, White Huns, Hephthalites and Alchon Huns

------------- - Ottoman Janissaries.htm , - Nadir Shah Afshar of Persia
