Eugeniusz Get-Stankiewicz (b. 1942) is a Polish graphic artist and sculptor. During the 1980s he was associated with the Solidarności (Solidarity) and created poster- and other designs for the movement. The Roman Catholic priest Jerzy Popieluszko (1947–1984) was also linked to the oppositional Solidarity and in his sermons, he agitated against the Communist politics and motivated the people to protest. The security service of the communist state tried to silence him in many ways unsuccessfully, and eventually, they set up a car accident to kill him. Get-Stankiewicz created this piece, to commemorate the memory of Popiełuszko, the red figure carrying the cross in the white background, emerging from the red soil or banner, the two colors and the composition is an allusion to the Polish flag.
