I don't think our medieval artist was so dumb to confound a mature man with
an old one!
He was an artist, man! And his heart was very close to the times we are now
dreaming of. He surely knew that a master of the military order of Santiago
was not an old man, as he shows in his picture. Canal Sanchez-Pagin should
be aware to this fact.
