China - Interiors of Chinese Peasant Homes

Nan Wang Jia village is surrounded by small cottage industries providing employment for local men in, for example, the local brickworks. The inhabitants are not too badly off and their houses have several rooms. They do not go hungry, unlike their compatriots in Ningxia. Lei Yurun has been village chief since the 1970s. He was given this blanket for his devotion to the Communist Party and is a staunch follower of the "Great Helmsman", Mao Zedong. He remembers the time when people from Beijing came to buy up all the relics from the Mao era. All the villagers looked through their belongings for items to sell. He his his blanket because he did not want to part with it.
