In tow, green band edged with white on band of all orders. With his right hand he holds a book, on whose green spine the title "Constitution" is seen, supported on sheets of the newspaper "Diário do Senado" arranged on a table covered with green cloth. On the same table, a golden metal desk with white plumes in the inkwell. With his left hand, he holds the handle of the worked gold gala saber. Short, whiskered hair and golden fluff.
