"Alle Wege des Marxismus führen nach Moskau"
"All Marxist paths lead to Moscow! Therefore CDU" - This campaign poster, created for the West German federal elections of 1953, certainly ranks among Germany's most iconic political posters of the postwar period. It highlights Konrad Adenauer's stern anticommunist course, here directly aimed at the Social Democrats, then the leading party of the parliamentary opposition.

Hugo's right side (to the viewer's left) is blurry. If that's in the original photo and this file is faithful to that photo, we should probably approve featuring it, because of the author's importance and his compelling facial expression, but I think I'll leave that judgment up to others. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:12, 11 February 2016 (UTC)

Chairlift and skiing on the mount Secëda in Val Gardena
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment When I was thinking of what someone might object to, the crop on the left side where the chairlift is occurred to me. My feeling is that in order to have an entire post near the left side of his image without having no space between it and the edge of the picture frame, he probably had to cut off part of its mechanism.

Terentius Neo and his wife
  • Category: Commons:Featured pictures/Objects
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info created by an unknown pompeian painter, the rest by me -- Jebulon (talk) 09:54, 10 February 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I remain in the antique ages, with this nice, beautiful, and interesting fresco from a house in Pompeii, in the 4th style, depicting a pair of middle-class Pompeian, certainly husband and wife. It was placed on the back wall of the house, so as to be visible to anyone who transited to the atrium. It shows the baker Terentius Neo, as revealed by the engraved inscription inside the house, and not, as has been by mistake felt for a long time, Paquius Proculus, whose name appears in an electoral inscription painted on an outside wall. The two persons are portrayed as wealthy refined, cultured and fashionable: the woman is wearing a red robe, a pearl necklace with pendant in gold and pearls in the ears, has the typical Nero-era hairstyle (her hair divided by a parted in the middle and tied back, except for tight curls that fall on the forehead), and flaunts culture holding a diptych of wax tablets and a stylus, the same attitude of the so-called "Sappho fresco". The baker wears the toga, that indicates the dignity of magistratuus, and clearly highlights the rotulus (the document certifying his social rank) . All of this is a bit "too much". The current interpretation is that, despite everything, the facial features, made by the author with deliberate loyalty, betray the provincial origin of two upstarts, probably of Samnite origin who, once conquered the economic well-being, aspire to hide their humble beginnings and become a full right in polite society. Found in Pompeii, ca.79 CE, now on display in the National Archaeological Museum of Naples, Italy.-- Jebulon (talk) 09:54, 10 February 2016 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Based on my reading of Category:Panthera onca, there are currently only 2 Featured Pictures of jaguars - one of which is a head shot, and the other, a body picture far inferior to this one and also taken at a zoo. The entire animal is quite sharp in this picture, and even at full size, the entire picture is quite easily viewable, without bokeh that blurs anything anywhere close to unrecognizably. At full-page size, the entire composition is clearly in view, with a foreground, middleground and background - a very good composition, too, in my opinion - showing the jaguar in its habitat.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support This is the church of the Holy Apostles (Ναός Αγίων Αποστόλων Σολάκη), built in year 1000 in the ancient Agora, as seen from the Acropolis. It is situated partly over the Nymphaïon (2nd c.C.E.). The original floor-plan of the church was that of a greek cross, with apses on the four sides, and a narthex on the west-side. Four columns support the dome. The altar and the floor are of marble. The disposition of some tiles on the outer walls show "cubic" decorative patterns of eastern origin. Four building phases are known, from the repairs and reconstructions over the years. Among all the mediaeval monuments known to have existed in the Ancient Agora, it is the only one preserved.

Nothing important, this kind of dramatic description is quite normal in photo contests promote by this Brazilian "group", the lack of orientation create this type of description.

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Byzantine fresco in the little church of Agia Anna (Αγία Άννα), Amari Valley, Crete. The frescoes are dated 1225 and the oldest dated frescoes in Crete. All by me. --Uoaei1 (talk) 17:01, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Andrew of Crete, jugding from his vestment and the fact that in the whole fresco says Α(γιος) ΑΝΔΡΕΑΣ (saint Andrew). PS: Oldest dated, maybe, however not the oldest in Crete. --C messier (talk) 00:14, 6 February 2016 (UTC)
    • Thanks. Minoan frescos are older !--Jebulon (talk) 15:52, 6 February 2016 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Good digitalisation, yet the fresco is neither well preserved (would you support an equally damaged painting?), nor it is (IMHO and I'm not the only) of high artistic merit, it isn't even the oldest preserved byzantine fresco in Crete (the chapel of Agios Nikolaos in Agios Nikolaos has frescoes with aniconic motifs that date from the iconoclast, 400 years before or more). --C messier (talk) 12:01, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
  • For whatever it's worth, I consider at least what we're seeing to be of artistic merit, and yes, I surely would support a good picture of a damaged easel painting if it were a good and historically important work. In some cases, such photos are actually really important, because they're the "before" photos, with the "after" photos having been overcleaned by restorers, so if at a future time, they want to restore some of the varnish and pigment they shouldn't have removed, referring to the "before" picture could be invaluable. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 11:02, 10 February 2016 (UTC)

  • I don't think so. Please look at the ground, the stairs and the shadow areas. Sky and red facade are OK in my opinion. Regards, -- Wolf im Wald 04:53, 3 February 2016 (UTC)
I think that might just be a consequence of the short exposure and the sun being almost behind the camera. Daniel Case (talk) 18:29, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

Main altar of the Church of the Society of Jesus (La Iglesia de la Compañía de Jesús), a Jesuit church in Quito, Ecuador. The exterior doesn't give an idea of the beauty of the interior, with a large central nave, which is profusely decorated with gold leaf, gilded plaster and wood carvings, making of it the most ornate church in Quito. The temple is one of the most significant works of Spanish Baroque architecture in America and considered the most beautiful church in Ecuador.
