Portrait of Manco Capac, the First Inca King, dressed in the finery of his office and holding a staff in one hand. A bird rests on the finger of the other hand and a snarling lion is depicted at the ruler's back. This portrait is part of a series of 14 Inca King portraits that is based on the engraving by Antonio de Herrera, which in turn is based on a painted prototype (see Converging Cultures, 1996, p. 239).
