"Save energy at home" in a drawing by a youngster for the Mexico stamp of 2009. Electricity can be made from the energy of the sun.

Inti, Sun God of the Inca




Quote:
Inti, the Sun God
Of the major gods, Inti, the Sun God, was second only to Viracocha, the creator god, in importance. Inti was higher-ranking than other gods such as the Thunder God and Pachamama, the Earth Mother. The Inca visualized Inti as a man: his wife was the Moon. Inti was the Sun and controlled all that implies: the Sun brings warmth, light and sunshine necessary for agriculture. The Sun (in conjunction with the Earth) had the power over all food: it was by his will that crops grew and animals thrived.

The Sun God and the Royal Family
The Inca royal family believed they were directly descended from Apu Inti ("Lord Sun") through the first great Inca ruler, Manco Capac. The Inca royal family was therefore considered semi-divine by the people.

The sun's corona and spots seen in the Czechoslovakian stamp of 1963. Does anyone know what orbit is shown at the right of the sun, and what kind of rocket plane it is?

Hi, Kris, you mean Venus and multi stage rocket?

Another Czech stamp featuring the sun's corona. This one for the year of the calm sun.

(Hi Idebee, I meant the strange orbit at the right of the sun in the stamp of yesterday which looks as if it does not go around the sun. And by the way, I think the sun rise by Monet is one of his finest works; done in 1872. K.)

The sun becomes a tool of nazi propaganda on the low values (5 pf to 100 pf) stamps of Germany's January 21, 1934 airmail set.

A large solar energy installation in Australia, a country - continent - with plenty of sun that can provide alternatives to coal, etc. 2004 It's worth looking up the Nyngan installation, for example.

France, 2004, Sc. C66 depicting Marie Marvingt (1875-1963).
She was a great athlete and pilot who led an incredible life. Just reading her Wikipedia entry is exhausting and I would commend it to all. As incentive, consider that newspapers called her the "Fiancée of Danger" for much of her life.

With respect to her aviation career which landed her on this stamp, she was the first woman to pilot a balloon across the English Channel, and the first woman to fly combat missions, bombing Metz during WWI for which she rec'd the Croix de Guerre. Much of her life she devoted to promoting air medical evacuation.

For our instant purposes, there is a sun on the stamp.
