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:
http://www.warfare.altervista.org/Ancient/Yuezhi-embroidery-Noyon_uul.htm - Yuezhi men embroidered on three pieces of a carpet, Noyon Uul, Mongolia, after 120 BC
Similar to the shield of Fig. 3 (3) are http://www.warfare.altervista.org/Ancient/Pazyryk-Shield.htm - Pazyryk Culture Wood and Leather Shields, 5th century BC, Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg

http://www.warfare.altervista.org/Ancient/Yuezhi-embroidery-Sampula.htm - Yuezhi spearman on a textile from Tomb No. 1, Sampula (Khotan Prefecture, Xinjiang), after 120 BC
Compare this to the http://www.warfare.altervista.org/Ancient/Khaltchayan-Armour_bearer.htm - armour-bearer from the frieze of Khaltchayan Reception Hall, 50 BC-50 AD, north Bactria
