Textile - Propaganda - Mao Tse Tung Speaking. propaganda/ textile. Post 1970. Approx. 15 x 24 inches, and in very good collectible condition. post 1970. A silk textile in nice collectible condition. The era of Mao's Cultural Revolution lasted from the early 1960's to about 1974. It nipped in the bud the rising spirit of entrepreneurism, and nacient freedom. Fearful of losing control  Mao uprooted tens of millions, tore families apart, and imprisoned untold numbers of freethinkers, all in order to centrally manage and control the rising demand for greater freedom that resulted from the reopening of China to the West. The textile is based on a propaganda poster that was pasted on walls by the tens of millions throughout all parts of China, from the early 1960's and well into the 1980's.
