Women Religion Opium USSR Karl Marx


Original antique Soviet anti religious propaganda poster featuring images and narrative in a Russian lubok style based on the famous quote by the German philosopher and socialist revolutionary Karl Marx (Karl Heinrich Marx; 1818-1883): Die Religion...ist das Opium des Volkes / Religion is the Opium of the Masses - depicting illustrations of Religion and Women with priests and leaders from different religions dancing in a ring around a lady at the top with the text on a banner below reading "Stop! Live with a wrapped face..." and two images on the sides, one showing a man beating a lady "Wives obey your husbands like unto the Lord... Let the wife fear her husband!" and the other showing people giving food and presents to a priest "Do not face me with empty hands, but everyone with a gift in his hand..." above the main illustration with buildings representing various religions including a mosque, orthodox church domes, synagogue and temples formed into tree roots growing out to try to capture and entwine themselves around the women running towards the viewer to freedom with pots and pans, a baby cot, bible book and other household items in the smoke on the sides flowing down from the yellow background, the text reading "All that the priests taught lies, the women have seen, they are running away, and you can not call us back into the church..." with the main text on the margin below about women's liberation from their husbands and being housewives and instead giving them the opportunity to work and have more meaningful lives inviting them to "...go to the Soviets the factory committees in the Trade Union listen to lectures study read newspapers..." Poor condition, poster trimmed and re-collaged, restored paper losses, restored tears, foxing, staining, backed on linen.
