If you notice the 1800s book, the man has definitely got different paint scheme on his clothing. Vide the article linked in the post - http://theappendix.net/issues/2014/4/robot-of-jihad-a-guide-to-tipus-tiger

I wonder that the gentleman from the V&A didn't mention that. He should definitely have done his research on the item in historical records available if he wants to track what has been done in previous restorations.

Asian madman-dictator with a proclivity for celebrity and odd behavoirs. Why does this make me thing of North Korea's former leader?
