The poster "The Story of Dong Cunrui" captures a heartwarming scene of Chinese children engaging in the study of the heroic stories of revolutionary martyrs. Set in a typical rural courtyard in China, the image depicts six children learning about the story of the revolutionary martyr Dong Cunrui. In the scene, a boy dressed in white, adorned with a red scarf, holds a book detailing Dong Cunrui's deeds. He enthusiastically shares the heroic tale of Dong Cunrui with his friends, even mimicking the pose Dong Cunrui assumed at the moment of his sacrifice.

Dong Cunrui was a martyr of the Chinese Liberation War. During a battle, his unit was tasked with destroying an enemy mine to clear the path for the main forces advance. Despite heavy casualties suffered by his unit in the intense combat, another mine still needed to be demolished. Due to its shape, the explosives couldn't be attached to it. To ensure the success of the revolution, Dong Cunrui used his own body to support the explosives, raising them above his head to trigger the detonation cord. In doing so, he sacrificed his own life to complete the mission.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.
