Here is a poster with a strong layout and a powerful message.

Many of is perhaps familiar with the drawing "Vitruvian Man" which was made by Leonardo da Vinci around 1490. The same drawing is used on this poster but in this poster the man breaks the chains labeled "apartheid". The symbolism is clear - on da Vinci's drawing there where no chain on the man and on this poster the man returns to what he used to be - FREE! 

In the top is the text in Danish saying: "Solidarity" (solidarity). The poster was very likely published by a Danish left-wing party and many of those partys worked tirelessly against the horrible apartheid (racial segregation and discrimination) that existed from 1948 to about 1991 in South Africa.

Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
