Summary note
A New Year print depicting two girls and one boy, all wearing the red scarves of the Young Pioneers, on top of an elephant. One girl has in one hand a pineapple, a fruit that symbolizes prosperity, and holds up in the other hand a blossoming branch. The second girl hugs a basket of peaches, symbolizing longevity. The Chinese word "骑象" (qi xiang, or "riding an elephant") is a near homophone of "吉祥" (ji xiang), meaning auspicious.
