What we have here is a beautiful Polish circus poster featuring great artwork of two lions!
One of the lions seems to have the face of a woman who gently hugs the "real" lion who looks quite surprised by the situation. Nevertheless, this is a quite humorous and happy poster indeed.
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. This poster was created by the Polish artist Waldemar Świerzy (1931-2013) who was a member of the infamous CYRK group.
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.
