  • Gulag Archipelago Artwork by N.Getman

    N.Getman was a survivor of the gulags and I found a website with reproductions of his paintings from the experience.

    The crucified figure is a prisoner exposed to mosquito bites-one of the forms of punishment practiced by Soviet guards. I guess the Siberian mosquitoes are so vicious death due to blood loss was a typical outcome of this punishment.

    The website has two pages with images by Getman. His paintings send a strong warning about the ultimate meaning of socialism and communism.
