About the Artwork

The cockade and the baton of command make this blockhead believe that he is a superior being. He abuses the power entrusted to him in order to annoy everybody who knows him. He is haughty, insolent, and conceited with his inferiors in rank, and abject and base with those who have greater power.


La escarapela y el bastón le hacen creer a este majadero que es de superior naturaleza y abusa del mando que se le confía para fastidiar a quantos le conocen; sobervio, insolente y vano con los que le son inferiores, abatido y bil con los que pueden más que él.
