From the series Tsûzoku Suikoden gôketsu hyakuhachi-nin (The Hundred and Eight Heroes of the Popular Suikoden). We see Shameisaburo Sekishu, or Shi Xui in Chinese, wearing a travelling hat and robes as well as elevated platform sandals. He carries a staff and a large wooden ceremonial drum with mallet. He seems to have arrived at his destination and looks up towards what must be a fortification, as a stone wall is seen at left. His robes flow nicely in the breeze.
