From a portfolio of 27 prints.

Along with the church, the kulak, or wealthy landowner, and the village priest were seen as key impediments to the Soviet anti-religious campaign. In this image, the giant silhouetted tractor, symbolic of the Soviet government by both its red color and the sign of the hammer and sickle, mows down a church as well as the kulak and the priest. The fields in the background, delineated by barbed wire, refer to the land owned by the kulak, who was the primary opponent to true agricultural collectivization.
