This is "Man at crossroad" painting by Diego Rivera. The background story of this painting was depicted in a tamil movie. Explain.

When rockefeller built the rockefeller centre, he wanted a mural in the lobby. He wanted some modern artist. Rivera was appointed on the recommendation of Mrs.Rockefeller. Rockefeller was a capitalist but Rivera was a communist. So he did a mural where he hid many communist symbols ( can you spot lenin in the picture?) Rockefeller understood this only after the work was complete. He was furious and brought down the mural.

Sounds familiar? watch 'Anbe Sivam' again.
