In Chinese culture, pigs are the symbol of wealth. Their chubby faces and big ears are signs of fortune as well. Pigs also possess a beautiful personality and are blessed with good fortune in life. Recent years of the Pig are: 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007 and 2019.
This set of delightful stamps feature paintings by Zhang Yong, a chinese visual artist who since childhood was tutored in Chinese painting under Mr Luo Jintang, an artist of the Lingnan school of painiting and a cultural relics expert in Guangdong Province. Later, he was taught by Mr Ye Quan, a famous Lingnan painter. Zhang Yong is currently a member of the Guangdong Youth Artists Association, a member of the Guangdong Collectors Association and is the distinguished artist of the Studio of Political Consultative Conference of Guangzhou Haizhu District.
This set of stamps is the result of a wonderful collaboration with The Naughton Group, a Hong Kong-based graphic design and marketing company set up by Dominic Naughton in 1995 with whom we collaborated on our Year of the Snake stamp issue in 2001. Each stamp was designed by EJC Design.
