A powdered wig crowns his head and he clutches a fan, perspiring in the tropical heat. Ezequias portrays a personage in the employ of the crown. Packed into ornate armor, Little Master Salas' silken shirt and white ruff cover the stolid body, and a golden staff signifies the man's authority. Ezequias pokes gentle fun at fussy colonial pomp and circumstance, yet the portrait is compassionate as well. Titled Pequeno Mestre Sala in Portuguese.
