VLADIMIR KOZIN. TRUTH, 2008
The order is a sign of belonging to the number of people especially marked by the state. The orders first appeared in the Middle Ages, and some of them survived to the present day. One of the most famous “old-timers” is the British Order of the Garter, created by King Edward III already in 1344. It is still given exclusively to persons of royal blood. In Soviet times, orders were awarded to both people and organizations. For example, the newspaper “Pravda”, the emblem of which was made from St. Petersburg by Vladimir St. Petersburg Kozin. Here the form corresponds to the content: the coarse material reminds of Soviet mass housing.
