"To celebrate life and to mark the seasons, these wild men don powerful primitive masks, dress in fur, skins and horns, and drape themselves in clattering chains and clanking bells."

love it, lived in moscow in the early 80's and always used to love seeing these kinds of posters.  My father (who worked for the US embassy at the time) used to refer to this style as "socialist realism"

I picked this up as a present for my mother this Christmas. Beautiful book, it brought back a lot of memories.
