The images in the background (orange/green) represent the development of agriculture on the right, with modern machinery ploughing the fields, and the growth of industry on the left, depicting in particular the 'backyard furnaces' that were launched all over the country during the Great Leap with the aim of greatly increasing steel production. The mass movement Quanmin lianggang (All the people making steel) was launched, while in agriculture the Gao'e fengchantian yundong (High-yield field campaign) aimed to break records in agricultural production.
