DescriptionLeonid Ilyich Brezhnev, Chairman Mao and Richard Nixon are shown as giants standing across the surface of the Earth. Brezhnev uses his arm to support a gun, the bayonet attachment of which has been dug into the ground. The gun reads 'Made in China' and has a rope attached to it which leads towards Mao in the background. It would appear, however, that this thread has frayed and snapped into two. Mao stands with his arms behind his back, holding the other half of this rope. To the right, Nixon is shown with his own gun and bayonet, which reads 'Made in USA'. Nixon's bayonet is pointing towards the very same patch of land as Brezhnev's and the two glare at each other across the globe as Mao stands between them.
