Sergei Eisenstein holding up something special…

This is a portrait of director Sergei M. Eisenstein (1898 – 1948 ) by Agustin Jimenez (1901-1974).

The director is holding up a sugar skull. It was taken while Eisenstein was filming his unfinished masterpiece Que Viva México, which would have outlined Mexican culture and politics from pre-conquest civilisation to the Mexican revolution.
