Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth forces (probably 16th-17th century) singing the Bogurodzica hymn before the battle. Painting by Józef Brandt. Nice image of a fairly unique military force.

  • It doesn't seem to be used in any articles, though. Perhaps it can be added to Bogurodzica? Kirill Lokshin 19:21, 14 November 2005 (UTC)

  • Oppose. Standard picture. Nothing in particular. If you like battle images, you may want to check the pictures I added to the Battle of Gangut, Tale of Igor's Campaign, Slavic dragon, etc, although many of these were reduced in size and imported to Commons since then. --Ghirlandajo 13:49, 18 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Neutral. While nice and I love Brandt's line, I think this image does not belong to any article on wikipedia but the painter's bio. Neither at bogurodzica nor at Polish Army it seems related. And the articles it could be placed in could be the one on Żółkiewski (the bearded guy in the centre is Żółkiewski, isn't he?) and on Winged Hussars, but the figures on the painting seem too small to illustrate anything.

  • Support Fantastic painting. The army looks as from a myth, yet it was a real army. Nikola 08:42, 21 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose. The painting does not add to the afore mentioned articles. On the contrary, it is not a historic document, but an idealistic fantasy. Solid artwork, but not particulary inspiring. --Dschwen 21:07, 22 November 2005 (UTC)

  • Oppose This image is highly compressed and smallish. If the nominator could provide a High-Res Image i would support.--Ewok Slayer 21:15, 26 November 2005 (UTC)
