Paper Tigers

Rueben, it's a gem and I'm glad I finally framed it up. Thanks much. Actually it was framed like a month back, it spent a few months on my table, and I finally worked up the anti-laziness to collect it today.

"All counter-revolutionaries are paper tigers"

This poster shows the unity of Chinese military looking afar, while their feet rest on the carton like characters representing the western world. The original was an wood block print, one of many prolific propaganda produced during the Cultural Revolution.

And now we shop at Shanghai Tang.
