Hugo Raudsepp (1883–1952) was considered the most prolific and significant playwright of the Republic of Estonia (1918–1940), who later fell victim to the Stalinist repressions. This play is an example of his "neomythological" works, which reinterpreted biblical themes in the contemporary context. In the 1920s, Raudsepp was part of the "Elulahedased" group along with Mait Metsanurk and Johan Sutiste. With striking wrappers by Märt Laarman (1896–1979), one of the most outstanding and important practitioners of the constructivist style in Estonia. In addition to his own work, Laarman was instrumental in furhtering public awareness of avant-garde art: "Laarman edited and published The Book of New Art (1928), the group's programmatic almanac, which helped the public develop a better understanding of the avant-garde" (Art of the Baltics 38).
