20 Description Some symbols of the lost Russian tsarist rule are depicted against a red background of the picture executed by broad strokes. The tsarist eagle painted in graphic manner in black Indian ink is set in the left part of the composition. It's head with a three-cogs crown is turned to the right. A long greenish-gray building with arches representing a typical architecture of this time in Russia is placed in the right upper corner. A fish swims through two of the arches from the right to the left, facing left. Its body is cut out a original bond of 1917th. A short beam is placed below it. A black silhouette of a horse is depicted at it's left end (exactly under the fish) and a greenish-grey wheel of a cart is placed at the right end. A big black capital Latin letter "R" is written above between spokes.
