"Caring" Poster is a poster used by Shanghai Education Department, for the 6th grade elementary school students political education class. In this picture, Zhouenlai, an important political figure during Cultural Revolution was portrayed as a caring father figure for the children of China. A close friend of Mao, Zhou stayed in power throughout Cultural Revolution by supporting Mao's decisions, many involved secret executions to those who were considered Mao's threat. Zhouenlai, alleged never was able to conceive a child with his wife, is succeeded by a daughter, whose mother was one of many Zhou's secret lovers. This image was intended to paint a picture of how Communist Party leaders, represented by the good father figure Zhouenlai, cared about the next generation. Zhouenlai's secret past and dirty political agendas were exposed via many documentaries in the late 1990s in China and Hong Kong. Due to still largely state controlled media, to this date, many Chinese citizens have no idea of Zhou's true color. Size: 30.25" L by 20.75" W.
