Propaganda posters were in use well before the Mao Period and did not end with the Cultural Revolution, not even with Deng Xiao Ping. They are still in use today.
Lei Feng had repeatedly been advanced as a model of selflessness, hard work, frugality, obedience and loyalty to the Party across media. Taught in schools, his life and deeds are part of the cultural landscape even today. This is one example of the series of posters produced to illustrate his guiding message.
Each entry includes a caption showing our translation of the original Chinese slogan. This is provided as a courtesy and whilst we aim for accuracy discrepancies may occur and alternative choices of words and grammar are always possible. If the precision of the translation is important to you we can provide on request the original Chinese characters where possible.
Each entry also includes the pinyin of the artists names that appear on the poster itself. Again we make every effort for accuracy but mistakes may occur.
