Mao Kitsch - Xian, China
Oct 6 2001

An apt symbol for the new China - and they can be seen everywhere - is the capitalization of Mao's image. Should your taste run to camp, you would be hard pressed to find something NOT available in a Mao variety. Though visiting his corpse is still free, China is making a mint on everything from Mao watches to Mao museums. These items are all for sale and a market price can be determined through polite haggling.
