Thanks -- truly remarkable what the other side of the brain can do!!!
I've sent it onto my daughter the artist.
It reminded me of the mime Marcel Marceau in some ways, who I saw live a number of times.
In fact I'm doing an internal foresighting workshop next week and may use it to soften up the minds.
Not sure what the ' propaganda' value is -- did I miss something? I just saw it as execution rather than too much political comment.
[TEH] It's about the German invasion of the Ukraine during the Second World War. It didn't quite have the great Patriotic Leader Stalin in it, but the audience clearly saw it for what it was, and responded appropriately. If someone in the USA or the UK did the equivalent art about the Second World War, everyone would just be baffled by it.

It is extraordinary, but it is also a powerful piece of propaganda! Very strange indeed.
