description
The reference of this poster is the war in Croatia. The central motif is a photographic montage of a head, composed of two familiar museum artefacts: the portrait of Salona Woman (Archaeological Museum, Zagreb; head of Plautila (?), Salona, 3rd century) and the head of a prehistoric man (Croatian Natural History Museum, Zagreb, Homo sapiens neanderthalensis, Krapina Pleistocene).

The heads were combined photographically, with a double exposure. The female figure represents beauty (and life), and the skull death (and war), and by joining them, the author refers to the perils of life in war-torn Croatia. The wording is reduced to a minimum – the word Croatia is written – as site of the event – and the date – May 18, 1992 – the time. The poster has a powerful effect, arousing disquiet and describing the atmosphere of the moment.
