Caption for figure 2: In the stand for the Komsomol committee the principle of combined suspension stretchers is used. Some of them are mounted directly on the wall, and the other part is on wooden racks. Racks can be installed at a short distance from the wall, which allows you to create a multi-dimensional effect in the composition.\r\n\r\nCaption for figure 3: The design of the stand is simple and can be performed by high school students in the school workshop. The elements of the stand are the rectangular stretchers and a rhombic shape. Decorative stretchers are mounted at an angle with respect to the wall, which creates an additional shadow effect. Information plates were placed in the middle and attached to the decorative stretcher. \r\n\r\nunder frame: [some printing information] (1981-1982) \r\n[no artist name visible]
