    I have an idea for a project & have been looking at photos like these of soldiers by large roadside crucifixs.
    Have you any in your collections ?
    I know the Soviets banned religion so I doubt there will be many from the East. I'm sure there would be a few in Poland .
    I'm interested to see what you find & share of similar images. Thanks.

    Given the account of Christ's flailing by the Romans this has all sorts of echoes
