China - Interiors of Chinese Peasant Homes

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. 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.
