Our Rock – 1951

Our Rock

The second in the series during the Soviet Union’s ploy to shift the rules of the game towards rock beating paper. Lenin is shown in complete defiance of the game by crushing the paper in his rock hand. The choice of words is the most telling feature via the use of “Our Rock” which boldly suggests that they were ready and willing to take on the rest of the world with this audacious claim.
