Among the typical decorations of Chinese rural interiors (like newspaper as wallpaper) is the Mao poster that used to be very common after it replaced the Stove God in households. The smoked meet is partly an ironical reference to Mao, the nickname being used by netizens to call the embalmed Chairman to elude censorship. The toy tank alludes to the Tiananmen Massacre.
