Niko Pirosmani - Tatar Camel Driver

Tatar - Camel Driver
The artist is a Georgian Primitive Painter that died in the early 1900's. Niko Pirosmani was his name. It's a cute painting.
As I look at this man, I would say the subject is a Crimean Tatar, due to the shape of his hat. Did Crimeans wear those curled toe shoes? Are those Ottoman?
