Titled "Yu Gong moves the mountain spirit can change China", this visually stimulating poster shows the people doing heavy construction work in a village. Part of the image shows that people are holding the flag that says "support the village team, "Mao's Thoughts team" or "Youth Team". Another side of the poster shows images of people conducting criticism sessions and other revolutionary activities. The legend of Yu Gong states the story of an old man trying to create a road from a large mountain by chipping one little piece of the rock at a time. The Yu Gong spirit was used to refer perseverance will prevail. This poster was published People's Art Publishing, in February 1971.
