Thx Penny Rosen.
As it turns out, the above picture, which is already bad ass, was only half of the original picture. Thx to Robert Chastain for sending us the full picture, featuring Frida Kahlo and the Russian poet Vladimir Mayakovsky. So now we’ve got the real deal, and it looks even more hard core excellente.
