档/裆/挡中央 (Dàng/Dāng/Dàng Zhōngyāng): Party Central Committee

The character “[political] party” (党 dǎng) is replaced by “file” (档 dàng), “crotch” (裆 dāng), or “block” 挡 dǎng. 党 is not used because netizens feel it is a loaded term and at times may attract the online censors.

By “blocking the center” with a grass-mud horse, Ai Weiwei conveys the meaning, “F**k you, Party Central Committee” (草泥马裆中央 cǎonímǎ dāng zhōngyāng, i.e. 肏你妈党中央 cào nǐ mā Dǎngzhōngyāng).
This cover from Han Han’s short-lived magazine Party suggests that “The Party Central Committee has guns.”
