China - Interiors of Chinese Peasant Homes

Yong Cheng village. The portrait of ten generals depicts a meeting in 1951 when Mao Zedong awarded the military chiefs for securing Chinese independence. Some of the generals present include Liu Shao Qi, Zhou En Lai and Zhu De. Maoist imagery is omnipresent in the villages, especially among the older generation. The peasants are devout worshipers of the cult of the "Great Helmsman" and profess a profound hatred towards their Japanese neighbours. The Communist Party propagate this passion by regular distributions of calendars portraying the great Chinese leaders. The party flood remote parts of the countryside with propaganda where practically every home has a portrait of Mao. The younger generations, however, are not such ardent fans. Most are preoccupied with leaving the countryside to earn a living elsewhere.
