Two artifacts from the peace-loving, Christmas-celebrating pop music/high art couple. Ono and Lennon put forward the power of positive thought with the postcard, pasting the slogan across the world by means of billboards, posters, flyers, and postcards. The creation of the balloon perhaps serves as a statement on the Beatles’ music prowess -- conflating balloon sounds with the melodious tunes of the pop superstars.
