European Parliament elections 2009 (87): The Austrian Greens and the picture language of billboards

Max Kossatz who is writing the Austrian blog Wissen belastet (English: 'Knowledge bedevils'), presents the electoral billboard of the Austrian Greens, which is based on Delacroix's "La Liberté guidant le peuple", and remarks thereupon (own translation):
Unfortunately, on the electoral billboard you don't see on what the persons are standing.

Because, in the original they are standing on dead bodies!
Not the most advantageous picture language, I might say...

The same blog also remarks that the picture language of the Austrian Social Democrats is not very European, but rather based on classical national imagery.
