Family criticism meetings

This poster shows eight family members in a family meeting, six sit on the 炕 [Kang bed-stove], a traditional long platform made of bricks served as the major resting place in the household in the Northern China in the cold months. A middle-aged male in the centre is showing a 契约 [lease] to the rest of the family member. A young female sitting next to him is writing in Chinese calligraphy. A young man listening attentively is holding a long gun. Bags of grain and bunches of corn are at one corner of the room.
