This poster is dedicated to the horrors of the destruction and occupation Russian invaders brought to Ukraine. The artist quotes the image of Kateryna known to all Ukrainians from the painting and poem by Taras Shevchenko (1814 – 1861), the greatest Ukrainian poet, writer and artist.
In his poem, Shevchenko tells about the tragic fate of Kateryna, a young girl from a Ukrainian village, who was deceived and dishonoured by a Russian officer. After giving birth to a bastard son, she was rejected by her family and committed suicide. Kateryna became one of female symbols of Ukraine, reminding of all humiliations it suffered from the Russian colonization.
