Please Hammer, Don't Hurt 'Em

$ 30.00

Mao Zedong (and Communists in general) rode to power on the backs of the peasants. It is no surprise that many of the propaganda posters of the Cultural Revolution go to great lengths to encourage labor and cast capitalism in a negative light. In this poster, a somewhat Soviet-style image, we can see the workers unite. Translation: “The world’s peasants united!”.

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

Our large posters (between 70-80 cm x 50-60 cm) are most likely reproductions and, as with most collectibles in China, no claims will be made as to their authenticity or origin. We do guarantee that the item you receive will be in excellent condition, suitable for framing, and the exact item you ordered. In rare cases, specific posters may not be available- we will inform you about this as early as possible. Please note that many posters will have natural smudges or discolorations, and will typically come on “antique-style” paper that may have small imperfections, creases, or small rips on the edges. All prices include shipping and handling, as well as applicable taxes.
