Created: 1935
Media: Photograph of wood carving
Source: Duli Manhua 2, 10 October 1935
Notes:

A caped Chiang (looking much like the depiction provided in 1929 by Huang Wennong) is shown next to Lin Sen (nominal head of the Nationalist Government from 1932 until his death in 1943) in this unusual wood carving produced for National Day, 1935. Wan Laiming was one of the famed 'Wan Brothers' noted for, amongst other contributions, their introduction of animation into China.
