Very Unusual Hand Carved Coconut Shell

This certainly must be one of the oddest items to be produced during the Cultural Revolution - a coconut shell that has a quotation from Chairman Mao and palm trees carved onto the surface.

The quotation from Chairman Mao is 'The Chinese Communist Party is the core of leadership of the whole Chinese people. Without this core, the cause of socialism cannot be victorious'.

The shell has a natural sheen and dark color that makes this a very impressive piece. It measures 10cm (4 inches) high.
