Listing Detail Tabs

An original enamel sign from Communist China depicting Chairman Mao Tse-Tung.

The plaque has the Chairman's image on one side and the year 1968 and some Chinese script on the other.

These signs were hung in the streets and public places in China to promote the Chairman's image and to remind the population of his presence.

In the spring of 1968, as part of the Cultural Revolution, a massive campaign took place to promote Chairman Mao to 'god-like' status. It is likely that these plaques were part of this campaign.

A really interesting piece of propaganda history and striking graphic design that would make a statement displayed in any room.

The sign is in good, used condition with a few minor marks and light chips to the edge. The sign has two holes at the top for hanging.

The sign is approximately 340mm in diameter.
