Gao Brothers: Miss Mao (No 1) (Gao Shi Xiongdi: Mao Xiaojie No 1 高氏兄弟: 毛小姐 No.1)
Around 2005, Liu Liguo 刘力国 (1961–) began to create small porcelain sculptures of Mao, such as Mao as Laughing Buddha playing with his many children (ill. 5.59aill. 5.59b). Larger and less innocent, perhaps, is “Ms. Mao” to be seen here, with exposed breasts in red fiberglass (red, bright, and shining), produced in 2006 by brothers Gao Shen 高兟 (1956–) and Gao Qiang 高强 (1962–).
