3 June 1961, Monaco
Nature Preservation
designer:  J. E. Lorenzi
engraver: Gandon

Hands are often depicted as icons.  Here is another stamp from Monaco, which does not really express the stated concept of nature preservation, but is nicely drawn with beautiful colours.

手の切手。そう、手はかなりの頻度で切手に登場し、気持ちや行動を象徴するモチーフです。この場合は、小さな命を守ろう、と伝えたいのはわかるけれど、意図する大きなコンセプトの「環境保護」はあまりうまく表せていないような、、、それでも、綺麗な色の美しい切手です。
