Join Lenin

In the estimation of Bulgaria-based historian and writer Jonathan Taylor, Lenin was “Marx with a machine gun” and “a right short-arse”. In 1987, left-leaning teachers stowed this large painted plaster bust of him in the basement of their school near Sofia, evidently unsure as to how far the pendulum that was toppling the Soviet empire was going to swing. After the subsequent abandonment of the school, Lenin sat forgotten for almost three decades next to a bust of Gyorche Petrov Nikolov, a left-wing Bulgarian revolutionary and one of the leaders of the Macedonian-Adrianople movement who was assassinated in a politically-motivated killing in June, 1921. Shot and edited in 4K ultra high definition by Gunner.
