Army and the people are as one family

This poster depicts a PLA soldier cutting a young boy's hair in front of a wooden framed window. The boy is sitting on the soldier's neatly folded quilt and holding a toy rifly. The image aims to convey the close relationship between the army and the people and it is also represented by the Chinese texts on the peopercuts behind them. The papercut reads "拥军爱民 [support the army and cherish the people]".
