Year of the Rat Set and Sheet Set

A vibrant set of four stamps designed by Manx artist Megan Hindley of Stedhead Art. Each of the lively and playful images perfectly capture the physical agility and intelligence of this often maligned creature which is so successfully ubiquitous worldwide.

Product Description
  • In Chinese culture there are twelve Chinese zodiac animals used to represent years, and 2020 is the Year of the Rat.

    Manx artist Megan Hindley has wonderfully illustrated this set of four beautiful stamps, depicting the personality aspects of someone born under the year of the Rat.  The four very clever designs evoke the spirit and personality of the Rat, a character that is much celebrated in Chinese culture.
