This cabinet belongs to a small group of Indo-Portuguese cabinets on which both Indian and European, primarily Portuguese, figures are represented. The Europeans are recognisable by their outfits, characterised by slightly bouffant trousers, waisted shirts, and hats with an upturned flap. The activities represented on the present cabinet comprise of elephant riding and hunting.
Similar figures can be seen on examples in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, inv. no. 2000.301 (Dias 2013, p.104).
