TNJed,
I like that Grecian airmail. very nice.
Reminds me of the "Iris, Messenger of the Gods" stamp in the 1946-7 French airmail mythology series by Gandon.
Yvert PA17/ Scott C19



Another in the same series which is suitable for this thread is "Zeus as an Eagle Carrying Hebe" Yvert PA18/Sc. C20.

This Finnish souvenir sheet from March 26, 2004 features another painting by Akseli Gallen-Kallela. It is a cropped version of a watercolor illustration for a story from the Kalevala, the Finnish national epic. The sheet contains a larger, complete female figure with the upper torso highlighted (the stamp on the left), and an inset with a smaller version of the complete figure on the stamp on the right.

Here is Finland's March 8, 1994 pair of stamps commemorating the birth centenary of sculptor Waino Aaltonen (1894-1966). The stone sculpture on the left is Peace (1950-2). The bronze sculpture on the right is Muse (ca 1925). The photo pic shows this sculpture in its setting.

A mint souvenir sheet from the Aland Islands, an autonomous group of 6,700 (!) islands off Finland in the Baltic Sea. I have no idea what is the sculpture depicted on the stamp. Does anyone have any info on this artist or artwork?

Also, this stamp appears to have an embedded micro chip. I've never seen that before in the philatelic world...

Faroe Islands. Norse mythology. Does anyone have a translation for the text in the selvage?

I don't have a translation, but I think it is a quote from the Voluspa. The stamp is from a sheet showing scenes from the Voluspa, part of the Poetic Edda, which describes the creation and destruction of the world.

Ask and Embla, mentioned in the inscription, were the first humans, male and female. They were carved from an ash and an elm tree - in the background. In the middle ground are the three beings giving them life.

Here is the passage, which is verse 19 in Carolyne Larrington's translation:
"Until three gods, strong and loving,
came from that company to the world;
they found on land Ash and Embla,
capable of little, lacking in fate."

Alas the website mentioned on the stamp is long gone. It was a very helpful resource for those interested in Norse mythology. The url now points to the website for the Faroyar postal service.

There is a description of the sheet on this page:
