Love this Surinam stamps of primates!

Here is one I particularly like, of Poland's 2020 issue nr 2 of "Animals great and small". The first series had a chimpanzee and I think I already posted that but here is 1 of four from the 2020 sereis, a ring-tailed lemur (Lemur catta).

On March 30, 1973 Greece issued a set of seven stamps depicting archaeological findings from the excavations at Santorini (Thera). The 30 lepta value (Sc #1068) shows the "Blue Apes" fresco.

From wikipedia, "Akrotiri was a Cycladic Bronze Age settlement on the volcanic Greek island of Santorini (Thera). The settlement was destroyed in the Theran eruption sometime in the 16th century BC and buried in volcanic ash, which preserved the remains of the fine frescoes and many objects and artworks...In 1969, the fresco of the Blue Monkeys was discovered and created increased interest in the site. The rocky landscape which the monkeys are depicted climbing upon mimics the similar volcanic rocks near the site presently."
