Red is the East on Jug (Dongfang hong koubei 东方红口杯)
Not unlike the model works, the song Red is the East would be everywhere during the Cultural Revolution. And not unlike the model works, it came, redundantly multiplied in every possible form: one could buy it on canvas as well as on cheap LPs, on postcards, and stamps, on cushions, liquor bottles and teapots, on washing basins, handbags and on vases and jugs, in short, on almost all the utensils of daily life.
