A Maoist relic I found in a flea market in Hangzhou, China.
It's a set of tinted postcards taken from a production of
The modern revolutionary Peking opera "Taking Tiger Mountain
by Strategy", carefully revised, perfected and polished to the
last detail with our great leader Chairman Mao's loving care,
now glitters with surpassing splendour.
"Taking Tiger Mountain by Strategy" is one of the outstanding
model theatrical works. It describes an episode in the great
Chinese People's War of Liberation, a battle in which a pursuit
detachment of the Chinese People's Liberation Army wiped out a
Kuomintang die-hard gang in northeast China. The opera creates
the brilliant images of Yan Tzu-jung and other proletarian heroes
by the method of combining revolutionary realism with
revolutionary romanticism, and eulogizes Chairman Mao's great
thought on people's war. The successful creation of the modern
revolutionary Peking opera "Taking Tiger Mountain by Strategy"
is a splendid victory for Chairman Mao's revolutionary line on
literature and art.
