“The Great Seal (After El Lissitsky)”


  • Image of “The Great Seal (After El Lissitsky)”

A 1998 montage of imperial symbols. The decapitated double-headed eagle—a repudiation of czarist rule—is from El Lissitsky’s 1923 design of Vladimir Mayakovsky’s book of poetry “Dlia golosa” (“For the Voice”). The other eagle is from the American one dollar bill.
