Mushroom Cloud belongs to the set of twenty lithographs from the “Snatched Ecstasy of Yue Minjun”, which comes as a limited edition of 132 rare books. It features nine laughing figures resembling part of the regiment rendered against the background with the enormous cloud caused by atomic explosion. The iconography alludes to artist’s concerns with the issue of the nuclear power in contemporary China and beyond which is executed by the means of his emblematic irony and cynicism.
