This is a vintage original c.1956 Russian language circus poster featuring the legendary troupe of North Ossetian Cossack horsemen lead by Alibek Kantemirov. Kantemirov along with his sons formed the most celebrated horse stunt riding troupe of the 20th century. While little known in the West this troupe and their mastery of horse riding stunts were featured in more than 50 Soviet films.
This poster was folded once laterally across the center and has small areas of paper loss on the edges as well as some short tears, nicks and chips on the edges. The color remains strong and overall condition is good for this vintage original.
