Four men from the Caucasus in typical dress from the Karabulaks tribe. Plate N° 15. from Giulio Ferrario's work "Le Costume Ancien et Moderne ou Histoire du gouvernement, de la milice, de la religion, des arts, sciences et usages de tous les peuples anciens et modernes d'après les monuments de l'antiquité et accompagné de dessins analogues au sujet par le Docteur Jules Ferrario."
Published in Milan by the author between 1816 and 1827. This aquatint engraved plate was colour printed on fine move paper with additional hand-colouring. Engraved by G.Gallina.

A myth says that the Karabulaks, to which these lands have historically belonged, are the ancestors of the present-day Ingush. Therefore, it is alleged that the Ingush are the owners of the territory in question. The Karabulaks, who were one of the largest Chechen tribes toward the start of the 19th century, put up the fiercest resistance against tsarist troops during the Caucasian War of 1817-1864.
The majority of the Karabulaks died in that war. Some of those who survived went to Turkey and the Middle East, others settled on the territory of present-day Chechnya and Ingushetia, some registered themselves as Chechens, others as Ingush. This is a fact that no one disputes.
