a boy on a fish

魚に乗る男の子


10 December 1929, Netherlands
designer: H.H. Kamerlingh

After a small boy riding a flying Goose ( well, posted 2 weeks ago ), I am featuring another boy, this time on a fish ( a kind of Goby fish? ) on Dutch stamps.  But in this case, it could be a huge fish carrying a normal sized boy on…

I like these stamps, particularly their complicated perforation pattern.  This framing make a nice contrast to the simple drawing and letters – and makes these stamps elegant.

ガンに乗って空を飛ぶ小さな男の子の切手の次は魚(ハゼの種類?)にまたがって波間に浮かぶ裸の男の子をオランダから。この場合は魚が巨大で、乗っているのが普通の男の子、ということも考えられますね。

この切手は打ち抜き穴の配置に特色があります。ふつうと違う「額縁」が、すっきりとした図柄のこの切手を少しエレガントな存在にしています。

クリスマスを意識した配色で3枚並べてみました。
