Pic-of-the-Day: Cosmonaut's Bling!


Pic-of-the-Day

Under the banner of Lenin - to the stars!


(image via)

This wonderful picture is brimming with interstellar grandeur, as well as with some cheerful communist propaganda (Vladimir Lenin looks happy surrounded by constellations and nebulas). I absolutely love the colorful alien landscape shown here, strewn with sparkling fairy-tale gems (similar to legendary semi-precious stones found in Siberian caves). The glow emanating from the centerpiece gem is indicative perhaps of some crystal-brain alien intelligence - or maybe it was meant to signify the light of Communism shining in the darkness of space?

Also, check out these hip "USSR" gym-like spacesuits... Great painting; about as epic as they ever got during the Space Race and the era of the Soviet Union.
