The Ballet of Communism by AdonisWerther The Ballet of Communism by AdonisWerther
Ballet de l'Armée Rouge - The Ballet of Communism

The Red Army (Russian: Рабоче-Крестьянская Красная Армия, Raboche-Krest'yanskaya Krasnaya Armiya; RKKA, full translation the Workers' and Peasants' Red Army) was the armed force first organized by the Bolsheviks during the Russian Civil War in 1918 and, in 1922, became the army of the Soviet Union.

"Red" officially refers to the blood of the working class in its struggle against capitalism, and to the belief that all are equal. The appellation "Red" was dropped after World War II, when national symbols replaced those connoting the old revolutionary fervor, and it was officially renamed the Soviet Army (Russian: Советская Армия, Sovetskaya Armiya). The Red Army eventually grew to form the largest army in history from the 1940s until the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, although China's People's Liberation Army may have exceeded the Red Army in size during some periods.

"This piece is an example par excellence for his creativity, attention to detail and accuracy in technique. Also the theme is something new, far apart from all the pointless cliché photomaipulations."

Probably took all of their monies to build, and now they're starving. Good thing China grew up.

Absolutely stunning piece; it looks like a photograph, perhaps of the future.

Oh god, another adult pedophile, who likes marxism. Your picture shows that you're not only a sick, baby horse "clopper", but obviously someone who denies the genocides of the Soviet union, and believes that rich people should all die. Mentally sick, much?

1 : One day you shall learn that there's a difference between Stalinism and Communism. That day, you will understand that capitalism is the doom of humanity.
2 : My Little Pony is actually a good show, especially when you see the Fandom, that is amazing.

(This is a response to FenirWolf's accusation; I would have replied directly to him, but it seems that he banned me...) I believe in the 214 million victims of communism, but I also believe that capitalism wasn't much better. Also, what kind of argument is that? Because I like a cartoon I'm a pedophile? Did you know I could sue you for perjury just for that?

Wow. A brony-marxist? How low could you go, degenerate? Then again, it doesn't shock me, seeing how you do not believe in the 214 million victims of communism, yet love a fandom filled with pedophile horse freaks. 

Hint: There was no difference between Stalinism and Communism. He used the same tactics, as Lenin. (50 Million killed, by the way.) You must be one ugly, pedophile.

The picture is simply unbelievable! I'd like to know where you took it and if you did some changes.

Death to the communist and those who follow Communism!

not death, but compassion and help. People who live under communism have often suffered a lot. I agree that communism is a horrible thing and that the world would be better without it, but being angry, inflamatory and having a "kill them" attitude is not going to help anything.
