From a portfolio of 27 prints.

The Soviet anti-religious campaigners believed that the common man was enslaved by the church, and that his freedom could only be obtained by embracing the doctrine of atheist communism. The man in this image, blindfolded and chained to the dome of a church, wears the traditional tunic and hairstyle of a Russian peasant. The cross that he wears on the chain around his neck is the same one that extends from the top of the church dome.
