"This painting shows a couple who is always present in the parade of each samba school of Rio de Janeiro Carnival: Master of Ceremony and Flag bearer.
These couples should be presented to the jury, which will evaluate the costume and dance. Among the required steps are the wiggles, half turns, full turns, the turned and bowed.
The two can never give back to each other at the same time. The master of ceremonies must pass the impression that you are protecting your partner, which in turn can never let the flag curl on the mast or hit your body..."
