The majority of Thailand's stamps are either religious or royal in nature with 98 percent of the population Theravada Buddhists. Vesak Buja Day is usually commemorated annually. The May 10, 2019, issue included four stamps (each issued in a sheet of 10) as well as a souvenir sheet including the same four stamps....

Here's the first day cover, with Bangkok and Phuket cancellations.

In 1999, Poland issued a stamp with the design being a medieval painting of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. This painting is one panel from the circa 1390 Grudziadz Polyptych. This polyptych consists of two central panels, side panels, and folding panels. The resurrection painting is a side panel from the right. The Polyptych can be seen at the National Museum in Warsaw. The artist of these paintings is unknown.

From artsandculture.google.com, "This polyptych, commissioned for the Teutonic Knights castle in Grudziadz, is the oldest surviving large altarpiece with articulated side panels in Poland...These paintings display early characteristics of the International Gothic style"

This 2018. domestic rate (N) coil stamp of Ireland depicts the Corleck Head, a first or second century, stone religious artifact from the Iron Age. The head has three different faces.

From the dbirishstudies.wordpress.com site, "Some sources, like Finian O'Toole's History of Ireland in 100 Objects believe that it may represent Crum Dubh, a pre-Christian fertilitiy god. Other sources, like James McKillop's Myths and Legends of the Celts, ascribe it to the pre-Christian Irish fire goddess Brigit, whose dominions included smithing, fertility, cattle, crops and poetry... the head is generally thought of as being used by pre-Christian pagan Celts."

On July 1, 1997 Ireland issued two "anniversaries" stamps. The 52p stamp (Sc.#1071) commemorates the 250th anniversary of John Wesley's (1703-91) first Irish visit in 1747. The image used for the stamp is the circa 1766 oil on canvas painting John Wesley which is in the National Portrait Gallery in London, U.K.

From Wikipedia, "The Methodist Church was founded by John Wesley and his younger brother Charles Wesley during the 18th century as a movement within the Church of England. John Wesley visited Ireland on twenty-one occasions between 1747 and 1789...The Methodist Church in Ireland works on a democratic structure. There are no bishops or ordained hierarchy. Authority in the Church is vested in the Annual Conference and the trustees.

On April 2, 1982 Ireland issued a set of 2 "anniversaries" stamps. The 24p value (Sc. #518) commemorates the 300th anniversary of the ordination of Francis Makemie, the founder of Presbyterianism in the U.S.A.

From Wikipedia, "Makemie was born into the Ulster-Scots community of Ramelton, County Donegal, part of the Province of Ulster the north of Ireland. He attended Glasgow University, where he underwent a religious conversion...Rev. Makemie traveled widely along the American coast between North Carolina and New York, as well as participated in the West Indies Trade. In 1692, the year Makemie was granted land in Accomack County, Virginia, he and seven other Presbyterian ministers gathered in Philadelphia, and founded what later came to be known as the Presbytery of Philadelphia, the first in America, with Makemie as its moderator."
