My Russian Project!
« on: December 18, 2007, 04:23:42 PM »
This is my newly finished Russian project for my grade 11 Anthropology/ Sociology/ Psychology class. The theme is "How the Russian Autocracy kept the people oppressed, and the consequences for it." I don't actually believe they were kept oppressed intentionally, but I had to give it that view if I wanted to do something on Russia (the main purpose being for a project on Groups and Discrimination).

It's actually 6 dioramas stuck together, making a circle:



1.) 1861- Emancipation of the Serfs. Here we see Russian peasants milling in the fields under the grueling hot sun while they harvest.

2.) 1881- Immense Poverty. Little change after the freedom of serfs. Here we see a Russian family of peasants in their decaying apartment. 80% of Russia was composed of peasants and the like.

3.) 1905- Tension Grows. Here the Okhrana/ Secret Police raid a group of revolutionary up starters during the 1905 revolution.

4.) 1913- The Russian Aristocracy. They live in unprecedented opulence, in their gilded asylums. Russia's Aristocracy is said to have been the most decadent and frivolous known to history. Here nobles gather in a fashionable salon, reveling in their finery whilst the people starve.

5.) 1917- Revolution. The people have taken justice into their own hands, and ended the 300 year Romanov Dynasty. Here Lenin is seen, leading them into their future.

6.) 1918- The People's Revenge. The Imperial Family is executed on July 17th 1918. Their death was intense in violence, pain, and gore. This symbolized the end of what had been, there could no turning back.

I worked quite hard on this one, hope you find it of interest!

WOW.  Great job although the Rasputin Propaganda pics didn't come out in 1905.   Also I noticed you copied the pics from your artwork  on deviantart. :)  For the murder scene.

Your forgetting some people in your murder scene the servants, Dr Botkin, the footman, cook and lady in waiting.   Other then that. Hope you get a good mark.  :)

NAOTMAA Fan,

This is very impressive. Good luck!

Thank you all soooooo much! Sorry I apologize it took so long to respond to your kind remarks. I'm glad you took an interest!

I was perfectly aware that any Rasputin propaganda didn't make an appearance in 1905, seeing as to the fact that he only just met Nicholas and Alexandra that year. I didn't have any propaganda sources at hand, if any circulated during 1905, and so I just used that rather famous propaganda piece in hopes that some of my classmates, who have no knowledge of Russia nor care for historical accuracies, might recognize him. In regards I'm aware you were just trying to point this out, but there's no need for it :)

And in addition, I'm ultimately aware that Botkin, Demidova, Kharitinov, and Trupp are not in the final diorama, but I honestly didn't have the time or the patience to add them as I was on a time limit and it being 12:30 am. No one in that class even knows who and what a Romanov is, let alone who they were murdered along with. Priorities came first and so I only included main personnel.

Well of course everyone knows there weren't any propaganda pictures in 1905 but there's nothing else he could've used that would look as work as well. And besides not having enough time, nobody would even know who the other people were and it might even confuse them as to which were the Romanovs since they know hardly anything about them and their deaths.

It's all perfect and one of the greatest Romanov work I've ever seen in my life. I doubt anyone else would take the time and effort to make anything half as good as this. I applaud you.
