It is a die proof of a stamp designed by Pierre Gandon and issued by Monaco on July 12, 1948 shows sculpture of Aristaeus, the culture hero credited with the discovery of many useful arts, including bee-keeping.

The Naprstek Museum is a museum of Asian, African and Native American art located in Prague, Czech Republic. It is one of several permanent exhibitions of the National Museum. The museum, originally private, was founded in 1874 by the Czech national revivalist politician Vojtech Naprstek in his former family brewery, as the Czech Industrial Museum. After his death the museum became the Ethnographic Museum, and since World War II it has been focused on non-European cultures. In the 19th century the museum was one of the cultural and educational centers of the Czech intelligentsia. Much of its collection comes from Naprstek and his friends who were Czech expatriates, travelers and ethnographers (Wikipedia)

Here is a set shows North American Indian items exhibited in the museum, designed by Pavel Sukdolak and L. Sindelar, engraved by Josef Hercík, Ladislav Jirka, Jindra Schmidt and Jan Mracek and issued by Czechoslovakia on June 20, 1966 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Naprstek museum:

Alphonse Mucha: Czech Painter and the designer of Czechoslovakia's first stamps.

Alfons Maria Mucha (1860 – 1939), known internationally as Alphonse Mucha, was a Czech painter, illustrator and graphic artist. He produced illustrations, advertisements, decorative panels, as well as designs, which became among the best-known images of the period. He also designed the first banknotes and first stamps of Czechoslovakia shows Hradcany Castle in Prague, the official residence of the President, and one of the symbols of Prague.

Here are several of his great paintings:

Princess Hyacinth, engraved by Jiri Antonín Svengsbir and issued on November 29, 1968:
Oskar Nedbal's ballet-pantomime, Princess Hyacinth, premiered in 1911 at the National Theatre, Prague, with libretto by Ladislav Novak. Stamp shows Mucha's poster advertising the performance features the portrait of the popular actress Andula Sedlackova, who starred in the title role.

The Slavs in their Original Homeland (detail), engraved by Miloš Ondrá#269;ek and issued on November 27, 1990;
Mucha chose to start his history of the Slavic people in the 4th to 6th centuries. At this time, the Slavic tribes were agricultural folk who dwelled in the marshes between the Vistula River, the Dnepr River, the Baltic Sea and the Black Sea. With no political structure to support them, their villages were under constant attack by Germanic tribes from the West who would burn their houses and steal their livestock.

The couple hiding in the bushes (not shown in the stamp) in the foreground as their village burns on the horizon are the survivors of one of these attacks. The fear and vulnerability expressed in their faces beseeches the help of the viewer. A pagan priest flanked by two youths symbolizing war and peace floats in the top right of the composition. These figures foretell the peace and freedom that will come to the Slav people when independence is gained through war.


Allegories, designed and engraved by Jiri Antonín Svengsbir and issued on July 14, 1969:

Allegories of Music, Painting and Dance:



allegories of Ruby and Amethyst from the series of "The Precious Stones"
In this series, women personify four precious stones. In each panel, the upper part of the composition is dominated by the female figure, while the lower part features a realistically drawn flower whose colour echoes that of the particular gemstone. The colour scheme of each panel - including the flowing robes, the hair decorations, the mosaic halos and even the colour of the woman's eyes – recalls the colour of the stone. This lends a pleasing harmony to each image. The series contains four stones: Topaz, Ruby, Amethyst and Emerald.

A beautiful exhibition about Mucha's designed stamps and his artworks on stamps from Czechoslovakia and all over the world:
