The Planting of National Welfare is the Job of the Workers Themselves


This poster was commissioned by the Division of Sanitary Education which was part of the People's Commissariat for Health formed in 1917. It shows two men planting a tree, one holding the tree and the other digging the ground. This painting is on a white background and is in different shades of blue. The poster has writing both above and below the image and at the top is an emblem of a snake curled around a chalice.
