Description Within Symphony No. 5 Shostakovich was branded by the soviet party a 'Soviet Man' due to the fact the Soviet party recoknizing this as represention of a Soviet piece of music. Before this Shostakovich was in alot of trouble and almost sent to the work camps. To represent all this and the music i painted what looks like a stairway leading to his stature as a Soviet Composer.
