The two men on the left are dressed in soviks, a garment worn over a malica for the journey. Unlike the malica, it was sewn with fur outside. The sovik was an outdoor garment usually kept not in the chum but folded on a sled. On the road, it could be used as a sleeping bag. The man and boy on the right are wearing malicas. In the background is a chum, the Nenets portable light-frame dwelling place.
