Brazil Stamp on 150th Birth Anniversary of Father Landell de Moura

\"\"The stamp portrays Father Landell de Moura speaking into a wave transmitting microphone, one of the devices he invented.The drawing was created using an image of Father Landell and the device to assemble a picture that was complemented with digital artwork to reconstruct the real situation.

In the background, there is a reproduction of the United States patent document of 1904, and a design of the device. In the bottom left hand corner there is an Amplitude Modulated (AM) radio wave, for transmitting the sound of the human voice over long distances without using wires.The shades of sepia, the gold colored border, and the manuscript typeface used take us back to the end of the 19th century. Photography and computer graphics techniques were used.
