Hi Bookbob, Thanks for your info! That must have been a circus artist in the cancellation. And just for good measure, souvenir sheet 66 with the entire list of great places to visit. The largest is the "Neues Palais" in the background, built by Fredrich der Große in the 1760s.(Thanks for the great new addition. K.)
The 'Man with the Umbrella'. Many artists have a marvelous sense of humor - this figure stands in a fountain pool at the Fondation Folon in La Hulpe just south of Brussels. Jean-Michel Folon (1934-2005) was a prolific painter and sculptor and many of his works have appeared on stamps of different countries. The hands were issued by GB for the anniversary of the UN.
The Umbrella is catching the water instead of protecting from it! A Green Post sticker, 2009. And a good topic for Umbrella Day today. Greetings to Rod with many wishes for enough rain down your way to quench all wild fires!
