In 1992 it was the 500th anniversary of the discovery of the Americas by Christopher Columbus (1492-1992) and the theme of the Expo/Universal Exposition was to celebrate "The Age of Discovery".
Various countries had pavilions including Russia, USA, Japan, India, Australia, China, Canada and a common pavilion shared by countries of The Europe Union. Many of the pavilion was focused on space programs - symbolizing the modern "Age of Discovery" but many pavilions were also dedicated to show of different landmarks, artworks and cultural representations from each country.
Poland also participated in the Universal Exposition and made several stunning posters to encourage people to visit the fair and the Polish pavillon. I believe this poster wants to illustrate that being the expo equals that one can walk into the mind of a famous explorer and know his thoughts, see what he saw and experience what he experienced. The stairs represents the accesses and the blue "ball" in the head of the explorer is the world seen from the eyes of the explorer - a blue planet covered with water which needed to be conquered.
That is just what I get out from looking at this stunning poster :)
Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
