The poster "Hand in Hand, Scaling the Heights of the Yellow River" is a visually striking image that captivates with its unique composition and rich colors.

In this scene, a red flag flutters in the air, and the atmosphere is fervent. Villager members equipped with ropes, hammers, chisels, and wooden sticks work together on the steep cliffs, breaking stones and constructing water channels. On one side, the roaring and rapid waters of the Yellow River surge like a galloping herd of horses, spanning a vast distance that appears dizzying and awe-inspiring.

The words "Moving Mountains, Transforming China" inscribed on the rocks constantly inspire and encourage the villagers to rely on self-reliance and hard work. They passionately rearrange the land, brimming with the spirit to battle the elements and conquer the challenges. Hand in hand, they guide the waters of the Yellow River to irrigate their fields, completely altering the once barren and impoverished landscape of the mountainous region. The poster symbolizes their efforts to achieve agricultural prosperity for the benefit of future generations.

This artwork depicts the mountain villagers embracing the spirits of Dazhai and the Red Flag Canal. Through self-reliance and strenuous labor, they are determined to transform their impoverished surroundings, displaying their fervent enthusiasm and determination to build a new socialist countryside.

  • 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.

  • The Ross Gallery has the best selection of vintage posters I have ever seen. Seriously, if you are in the market, they are the people. And, they know everything there is to know about the posters' provenance.
