Bottom left – pencil inscription by hand Shevchenko: 22. Dalismen-Mula aule. (Text writed during the expedition, the number "22" identifies the serial number of the figure).

Dalismen-Mula-Aulye (meaning "tomb of St. Dalismen") is located in the central part of North Ak-Tau.

Such grave Shevchenko mentions in journal.

Br. Zaleski in the explanatory text to the etching of this figure gives the same description of the tomb as Shevchenko, noting that the grave is near the Chyrkala Tau mountain [see album «La vie des steppes Kirghizes», Paris, 1865, p. 59].

Dated by roughly defined residence time of the expedition in the North Ak-Tau.
