During the Cultural Revolution (1966–76), traditional auspicious motifs like peonies and peacocks were combined with motifs such as factories, tall buildings, cars, and highways. These appeared on everyday household objects, such as these quilt covers. The motifs conveyed praise for the modernization achieved under the new political regime and signify that its good fortune was also the individual’s.
