"From mythical dragons to historical figures, the act of 'killing' takes on various forms throughout time. In this captivating collection of images and events, we witness the power and consequences behind such acts. Trotsky's iconic poster depicts him as a slayer of counter-revolutionary forces, symbolizing his determination during a tumultuous period in 1918. The MONTPARNASSE ACCIDENT serves as a haunting reminder that even in modern times, tragedy can strike unexpectedly. Picture No. 10854827 captures an intense moment where life is taken away, leaving us pondering its significance. Drawing inspiration from literature, "Rime of the Ancient Mariner - I shot Albatross" reminds us that our actions can have far-reaching consequences beyond what we initially perceive. Australian troops' courageous counter-attack at Amiens during WW1 showcases their unwavering spirit against formidable odds. The Death of General Gordon in Khartoum stands as a testament to sacrifice and bravery amidst conflict; it immortalizes those who fought valiantly for their cause. St. George's mosaic in the Coptic Orthodox church portrays his triumph over evil with grace and faith. History reveals darker moments too: Ivan's heated argument leading to his son's tragic demise highlights how emotions can escalate into irreversible outcomes with devastating effects. Yet not all they are violent; Saint Francis taming the Wolf of Gubbio teaches us compassion and understanding towards creatures deemed dangerous or untamable. Staying true to its origins, St. George resurfaces once more in Gozo, Malta – reminding Europe of heroism against adversity through centuries past. Intriguingly different but equally impactful is the Bonnot Gang Raid Bank – showcasing how criminal activities disrupt society while also highlighting humanity's fascination with outlaws. Lastly, Homo habilis in action takes us back millions of years ago when survival relied on hunting skills – emphasizing our primal instinct to secure our existence.
