I've been doing some reading about the persecution of religion during the Soviet era, and came across this interesting painting by Ilya Glazunov.

The crucifix with the Orthodox Cross is very odd. Is this just a metaphor of some kind or is there something I don't know about?

I wondered about the same thing. I guess it's just the atrists interpretation?

I can only imagine how many times real situations similar to the painting actually occured. The suppression of the church was brutal, and I bet the painting isn't too far off.
