Mao Memorabilia


Mao Memorabilia
Originally uploaded by paulbrockmann.

Mao memorabilia has become a major industry, it seems. We’re not talking the truly old stuff — there’s plenty of that around, too — but newly manufactured stuff. I have to say it seems to me mostly Westerners by this stuff; I’ve seen plenty of white folks wearing the olive hats w/red stars…but no Chinese that I can remember. After this you’ll see a shot showing pictures of all the (Ming Dynasty, I think) emperors for sale, and then a blue roof ornament on one of the walls around the complex, with ladies taking dance lessons together in the background.
