The signed and dated set named Budenny's Calvary is one of the first works crated by Tamara Nikolaevna Bespalova-Mikhaleva (1912-1991) at the factory. The painting covers the whole surface of the items. Sometimes the artist seems to lack free space and naturally moves to internal surfaces, lids, noses, or handles. The set seemingly lacks composition, but in fact this solution is chosen on purpose in order to express the speed and fury of the Red Army riders.
