Finding Mao in China

Finding Mao in China Jakarta Vintage Luthfi Hasan

In China Mao is so ubiquitous, in a painting shop in Panjiayuan flea market, Beijing.  

Thirty-seven years after his death, he is still alive everywhere you go in China. Even in Panjiayuan flea market in Beijing, as you can see here. Mao Zedong, the founding father of People’s Republic of China, is present in the form of painting, calligraphy, photo, statue, plate, mug, and well, practically anything. His figure seems to remain popular as the newer icons such as Deng Xiaoping and Hu Jintao, the more current China leaders, come and go. To many Mao never dies, pretty much like vintage, to me. Have a nice weekend everyone :)
