    The Stamps

    This collection also continues our tradition of offering young Manx designers their first opportunity to design stamps. The talented Ana Jaks has incorporated aspects of the Tiger’s mythology:

    • 67p - The sign’s celebrated courage;
    • £1.71 - The cosmological link to the element of water;
    • £2.32 - Tiger’s compatibility with the Horse,
    • £3.89 - The auspicious association with plum blossom.

     The inclusion of traditional Chinese pottery forms alongside the customary use of gold metallic ink is apposite for this quintessentially Chinese celebration.
