Ren Si Hong's sculptures have an absurdist quality to them and tend to depict Mao Zedong in various comical positions, in a manner that is obvious caricature. In this work Mao is shown to have an exaggerated head, likely a reference to his inordinate amount of power and influence during his reign. Yet Mao is rendered naked, placing him in a state of vulnerability with his intimate areas exposed, an unexpected depiction of a political figure. Ren’s satirical expressions of Mao is a form of exorcism of that past, a means to secularise a god, and he sculpts with boldness of idea and thought.
He translates the propaganda of Mao’s speeches and publicity into art in, infusing it with his own humor.
