China Gets Religion

Anonymous Chinese Artist - Mao Zedong in The Last SupperWell, it had to happen, I suppose. Here's the new religion in China, depicted by an anonymous Chinese artist's lampoon of Leonardo da Vinci's famous work: Mao Zedong in The Last Supper. I found this in Letters From China, while browsing the web for a suitable picture of kowtowing to represent Red Ken's vision of how our "racist" immigration officers should greet his commie buddies when they visit London.

I fully expect a similar piece after the departure [if it happens before Gordon has an "accident"] of His Tonyness!

That's a thought, maybe with a Gordon Brown toby jug at Tony's foot, instead of the chamberpot by Mao's. Gordon has just the right face for a toby jug. Chamberpot too, come to think of it.

Actually, I think the anonymous artist is Zhang Hongtu. He's got a website too with some of his other Mao stuff (Mao on Quaker Oats box, etc.) at the amusingly named MoMao.com

Hi, ??????
I wondered who on earth ?????? might be. I guess those are Chinese characters.
Thanks for the information. Zhang Hongtu's website sounds interesting. Maybe another blog....
