Storming Mount Sapun 2 -- the Diorama

by Chossid August. 04, 2012 9618 views

I am definitely against wars, in general. If they bother you so much that you can't look, then don't. But we need these reminders for the generations to come, that they should not repeat the past, nor deny it, as unfortunately occurs in our times!

Diorama is a combination of a huge mural and 3D objects

Contrast to the idyllic scenery in the previous Mount Sapun post!

Kind of reminds me of a mural I saw at Gettysburg. Maybe someday humans will "grow up" and not require this kind of devastation. Interesting captures, Leah!

Deandrade had written that these were very good propaganda pictures. I misunderstood him (I thought he meant that they are merely propaganda,) but he PM'ed me "I was referring to the artistic style of the diorama, which is typical in the illustrations of propaganda, full of emphasis and patriotism." Yes -- they are definitely in the artistic style of Russian propaganda at the time! I thank him for his comment and clarification!

My country survived 2 world wars. It's a very sad topic in our history subjects. I cant imagine what it felt like to be actually there. Let's not repeat the history.

This is an impressive work! Does it help to avoid future wars? I want believe yes, but there is still too much hate in the world.

My daughter used to live right next door to The Lion at Waterloo. We would walk there often and visit the huge panorama of the battle in 1815. The weapons were less sophisticated, but the killing was no different ... Now E urope is at peace, thankfully it will remain that way.
