Cultural Revolution Poster #14

SOLD

This is one of my personal favorites. A cute young girl had her hands up, almost in a surrendering position, in front of her a basin of water, and a little duckling. In white under the picture the sentence read, “Before you eat and after you take a dump, you need to wash your hands.” I could make the translation less direct, but it would lose its meaning. This overly direct message was yet another byproduct of Cultural Revolution, where all the subtlety were taken out and left with nothing but bluntness. Size: 21.06” (L) by 15.16” (W)

Cultural Revolution Poster #2

 

We obtained this vintage poster, but not without some serious struggle. The seller won’t sell it at first, and we couldn’t find it elsewhere. It had bunch of angry Chinese, waving various weapons, and on the bottom it said: “The people from Indo-Zhi-Na countries shall win, and American capitalism shall be defeated”. We were told that “Indo-Zhi-Na” referred to three countries in Southeast Asia, Indonesia, Cambodia and Vietnam respectively. We ended up paying for a lot more than we had budgeted for, but we really thought it was quite special and deserved a good home for its uniqueness in history. Size: 45" Long by 31" Wide (114.3 CM Long by 78.74 CM Wide)
