Very rare and important Soviet poster for space exploration. It celebrates the first Soviet cosmonaut, Yuri Gagarin (1934-1968), first man in space with Vostok 1 on April 12, 1961. He holds in his hand the metal ball that brought Luna 2 on the Moon in 1959.

This exceptional propaganda poster combines two Soviet achievements: the first man in space and the first spacecraft on the Moon.
