Here is Japan's October 12, 1966 seven yen 'New Year's Greeting' stamp (Sc #903) celebrating the Year of the Ram (1967). Stamp depicts an Ittoboro carved sheep.

From kojeijapan.com, "Ichii woodcarvings (called Ichii itto bori in Japanese) are produced in the Hida region of Gifu prefecture, and are made only from the wood of Ichii (Japanese yew)...The craft is notable for the use of wood from Hida that is between four hundred to five hundred years old, being carved with only chisels, and not being colored in order to bring out the natural beauty of the wood grain."
