Several years ago, Sui Jianguo created his Legacy Mantles series, with the ambition of identifying the most significant China cultural icon of his time. This is a series of sculptures in the image of the "revolutionary" uniform made famous by Mao, and they are stiff shells of the jacket without the person inside. Sui saw in the jacket the representation of a new faceless power that broke free from China's traditional dynastic order.
