The top of this small porcelain jewelry box depicts Mao and Lin Biao reviewing the Cultural Revolution army at Tiananmen square. Just below the image the sentence reads "Chairman Mao and his dear war comrade Lin Biao reviewing the great army of the Cultural Revolution". The other side of the cover is imprinted with the familiar slogan to all Chinese who lived through Cultural Revolution: "Manufacturing industry needs to study Da-Ching, Agricultural industry needs to study Da-Zhai. Everyone in the country needs to learn from the People's Liberation Army." In smaller print, it says "excerpt from the Eighth Chinese Communist Party meeting, the 11th session". During this meeting the president of China, Liu-Shao-Qi was declared a traitor, accused of several other crimes, his communist party membership was removed, and he was removed from power. This meeting created an urgency in the country, and set the tone of crisis for many older communist party members, many subsequently were removed from power just as Liu-Shao-Qi was. As shown in the photo, the bottom of the second half of the box was imprinted "Jiang-Xi Province Revolution Committee", the replacement entity for the Jiang-Xi's provincial government during Cultural Revolution, and the second line imprints "Year 1968". Size: outer diameter 4.31", inner diameter 3.35", tall 1.57”. Additional photos available at http://www.zitantique.com/crposter22.html.
