Where the world is directing to – I am almost lost if I think about it. Yet let’s have healthy and joyful year ahead.
Rooster is the animal of the year in Eastern zodiac. This stamp is made by a veteran engraver who created a lots of beautiful works during his career of 50 years, which include a definitive Marianne original by Cocteau, satellite communication with starry sky and the 50th Anniversary of Tour de France.
