Lot description
"Miss Mao #1" (2006) is the first white-painted edition of this iconic sculpture by the famous Chinese Contemporary duo The Gao Brothers. Dimensions: 19.9 x 12.2 x 11.8 in. (50.5 x 31 x 30 cm), from an edition of 12, in excellent condition.
The Gao Brothers, Zhen and Qiang, born in 1956 and 1962, approach arts as a mean of political expression with the image of Mao is a recurring image of their iconography. The Gao Brothers’ tarnished impression of Mao Zedong is reflected in "Miss Mao’s" Pinocchio tell-tale nose representing the lie that Mao had always been during his leadership to his people.The Gao Brothers displace Mao Zedong’s omnipotence through the fusion of female breasts, demeaning the leader’s power and gendered powerlessness.
