Hands held behind the back are represented on the canvas. This position of the hands expresses determination and superiority, and supports self-confidence, but alongside, it does not belong to the ceremonial representative side. The artist polemicizes with the tradition of portraiture: it is not only the face that tells about a person – other, often apparently insignificant details can be equally important.
