Commemorative Issue: Christmas 1991

Birth of ChristSaint BasilBaptism of Jesus

The Christmas series of stamps for 1991 is related to the three big feasts of the period of twelve days, i.e. Christmas, New Year's Day (Saint Basil's feast) and Epiphany. The modern painter of icons, presents in these series of stamps the Birth of Christ, St. Basil and Baptism. In the technique which follows closely the regulations and the laws of Byzantine art the element of innovation is not missing. Someone, looking at these works remembers not only the Byzantine painters of icons of old days (Emmanuel Panselinos, Theophanis of Crete) but also the western painters who have worked with elements of Byzantine art.
