Murals were another way for unionists and the political left to convey collective identities. This section of a communist mural, painted by Judith Evans in 1944, features a Māori woman wearing traditional clothing and a (non-traditional) headdress with a communist star. Around her are other heroic figures holding different commodities. A ribbon features the words: 'From each according to his ability; to each according to his work'.
