Ballet Soldier

$ 30.00

This poster is an interesting example of how women were sometimes portrayed as helping the war efforts in China. Yes, she is a ballet soldier. The Chinese text reads, from left to right and top to bottom: “Red Women’s Detachment, Modern Ballet Performance, Magnificent Women’s Army”.

Nobody did propaganda like the Chinese. This is your chance to own a bit of history.
