The Soviet past and parallel worlds mixed up in one picture

The  "Pigeons"  picture tells a story of a bright city with broad avenues, green lawns with planted flowers.  A city, where heroic pilots, trailblazers, and astronauts march through the streets in their jumpsuits while the sidewalks are filled with skilful roller-skaters. It is about a city where people can fly, everyone is polite, and the city transportation works like a charm.
