METRO VANCOUVER – A public art installation depicting Russian Communist leader Vladimir Lenin and a feminized Chairman Mao Zedong in the heart of Richmond’s business district has the whole town talking.
“When I went to the gym at 5:30 this morning it’s all people were talking about,” said Richmond city Coun. Derek Dang, who saw the piece for the first time Wednesday. “People just can’t believe it.”
You better believe it Charlie.
The piece — Miss Mao Trying to Poise Herself at the Top of Lenin’s Head — was created by Beijing-based brothers Zhen and Qiang Gao.
