Original color chromo-lithograph propaganda poster. 56x43 cm. In Russian. A folded sensitive trace on the poster. Otherwise a very good copy. "Color lithograph of Russian bogatyr on horseback fighting a three-headed dragon; heads are Kaiser Wilhelm, Franz Joseph, and the Sultan of Turkey. This poster draws on a scene from a medieval legend to portray an embattled Russia. A medieval Russian knight faces off against a three-headed creature representing the Central Powers of the First World War: Austria, whose head has been cut off; Germany, whose neck is wounded; and a vulnerable Ottoman Empire.".
