    Smashing of the Church at Easter Night  
    1999 year
    Oil on canvas. 397×797

    .
    Are those centimeters (397 x 797)? 
    So this is a recent work -- I didn't find any description of what is entailed here. I'm not sure what I'm looking at.
    .
    Was this a scene that preceded a Church being "smashed?"

    I assume they are centimeters.  On a cursory search I could not find a full descritption of the picture other than the words,
    A Jewish bolshevik shutting down an Easter midnight service. Detail from a larger monumental painting from 1999 by Ilya Glazunov.
