In case you wondered:
The background painting is “The Battle of Vienna” an 1863 painting by Josef Brandt currently in the Museum Wojska Polskiega in Warsaw. Brandt was a frequent depictor of the battles between Poles and Cossacks and Turks and Ottomans. Poles are justly proud of their role in turning back the Ottoman enemy before Vienna in 1683 and saving the west from destruction.
