"Long Long Life to Chairman Mao" This was once a very controversial poster and two times banned from publication by the Chinese government during the cultural revolution period. It was argued that the well dressed and jewels wearing Shanghai style lady in the poster was a big symbol of capitalism and should therefore be condemned rather than promoted. There was also argument about whether it should include the "Hua Biao" on the left top corner. Anyway, very few copies of this poster survived. Description by Chris To (Hong Kong)
