Rabbit or Hare


15 January 1991 (top) and 24 January 1992 Switzerland
design: Celestino Piatti
engrave: M. Müller

Another Easter charm is rabbit – or hare, both have just started to jump around fields.  I think, this stamp, illustration by Celestine Piatti, is hare – as it has long and stand up ears.  In the mountain area, their hair turns White as camouflage and it is the moment when some patchy browns come back.

Second one is bull in spring field – both stamps are in vigorous lines and bright colours – and for me they have evocative atmosphere of early 1990’s.  Is that colour on letters make me think so?  I have featured an Animal Welfare stamps by same designer, which is from 1959 – 32 years apart.
