Hungary Released Stamps on Performing Artists

\"\"Magyar Posta has issued three new stamps to mark the centenary of the birth of Hungarian performing artists – Rezso Gacs (stage name Rodolfo), Lajos Basti and Manyi Kiss.

The stamp designs feature the portraits of the artists.

Next to each artist are objects associated with their work, namely cards and a magic wand, Rodolfo\’s indispensable props for conjuring tricks; a crown, reflecting the motto about Lajos Basti \”the king of actors, the actor of kings\” as well as a violin and a manuscript referring to his artistic versatility and literary activities; and a cream cake, known from Manyi Kiss\’s evergreen song.
