  2. Thanks very much - from what I recall, this is a piece of Soviet propaganda from the 1920s which I found online. It's such an amazing image.

  3. I was researching Russian constructivism a few years back and compiled a nice collection of similar images. The graphic designer in me really appreciates the bold colour and composition

    " I felt only night within me and it was then that I conceived the new art, which I called Suprematism. "

  6. It's pretty awesome that the image bears the symbolism of the Imperium. The three pillars of the Inquisition, the bull of the Imperial warmachine feeding on the entrails of the dead and haloed figure with their sword held horizontally portraying equality in judgement.

  7. Yes, it almost looks like it was drawn for an in-game book, doesn't it? It's a great image.
