This sleeping lion wearing armor next to a cranium is quite a mystery. Perhaps the lion was victorious in a gladiator fight and is now resting? The only thing I know is that the poster is a circus advertisement.
The name "CYRK" means "circus" in Polish but it also refers to vintage circus posters from Poland, emerged from around 1962 as a genre of the Polish School of Posters. They are characterized by their display of aesthetic qualities such as painterly gestures, linear design, hand-lettering, metaphors, humor, and vibrant colors. Jerzy Czerniawski, the artist of this poster, is considered to be from the second generation of designers from the school.
The CYRK posters are usually based on a single theme and meant to be advertisements and were created in an attempt to interest the passerby in the upcoming circus.
This poster is great addition in most rooms as the simple and colorful look will both give add to the beauty of room without stealing the entire picture.
Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
