9 February 1970, Sweden
Memorial Cross, Ekshärad churchyard
Weathervane, Soderala Church
engrave: M. Franzén (5ö) and H. Gutschmidt (30ö)

One of the features which catches my eye when I see ironwork is the spiral.  There is some kind of power there, especially when they exist in numbers.  A lot of spirals – somehow makes me stare at them and be hypnotised.

This series of stamps, definitives from Sweden, are simple and powerful examples to reproduce the power of the spiral.

中世の鉄細工を見てわくわくする要素のひとつが、うずまきの繰り返しです。どうしてこんなに引きつけられ、くらくらさせられるのか。やはり前世の記憶が、、、?

このスウェーデンの普通切手は、鉄細工のシンプルな魅力がそのまま切手になっていて、うっとりしてしまうのでした。
