About this work

Description

In a village community, some male farmers are sacking up and loading wheat on to a tractor and delivering to the government. These are not only taxes but also the public's food reserves. The words written on the granary say "Bei zhan bei huang wei ren min", meaning "Prepare for war and prepare for famine for the people". In front of many bags, a young woman who has a notebook and a fountain pen, and might be an accountant in her ordinary urban life, is picking up some grains off the ground to avoid waste
