Marine Mosaics by Kimmy McHarrie

Collection Issue Date: 7th March 2024

Dive into the mesmerising world beneath the waves with Marine Mosaics

This captivating collection features six stamps showcasing a selection of fish species that hold special significance to Islanders. Crafted with meticulous detail by renowned mosaic artist Kimmy McHarrie, these stamps are a testament to the beauty and fragility of our marine ecosystems.

As an island whose heritage is deeply intertwined with the sea, the decline in fish stocks is a matter close to our hearts. Through Kimmy's intricate mosaics, we pay homage to the rich maritime history of the Isle of Man while highlighting the importance of conservation efforts in preserving our oceans.

Each stamp tells a story, reflecting Kimmy's lifelong connection to the sea. From her childhood days spent exploring the bay of Castletown to her acclaimed career as a mosaic artist, Kimmy's passion for nature shines through in every piece.

Delve into the details and discover the Manx names of these iconic fish species, passed down through generations. From the humble Herring, known locally as Skeddan, to the majestic Braddan (Salmon), Kimmy's artwork celebrates the cultural heritage of the Isle of Man.

Additionally, the collection includes our Europa stamp for 2024, providing a unique glimpse into the shared cultural and ecological heritage of the Isle of Man within the broader context of the Europa stamp initiative.

Join us in celebrating Kimmy McHarrie's extraordinary talent and the resilience of our marine ecosystems. These stamps are more than just collectables—they're a reminder of the beauty that surrounds us and the importance of protecting it for future generations.
