Andrea Ucini / Xi Jinping dreams of world power

View Portfolio

Andrea Ucini’s illustration for The New York Times on President Xi Jinping of China and his boldest political move yet: maneuvering to extend his rule indefinitely to maintain control of China.

Xi Jinping’s desire to exert economic and political influence across the globe is shown powerfully here as a metal ball with China’s flag on it prepares to hit a ball with a map of the world and that, in turn, hits a ball bearing the U.S. flag.
