Here’s a page from the Russian children’s book About Two Squares. It’s about a red square and a black square that fly to Earth from space. I really like that! And I thought it would have been cool if the squares had magic powers or something. But actually, the squares represented the superiority of the new Soviet order (red square) over the old (black square).

It hangs over a staircase.
