Liechtenstein: Stamp on Year of the Snake

\"\"This  is the second stamp in the \”Chinese Signs of the Zodiac\” series, which last year was devoted to the Dragon. This issue  focuses on the official sign of the zodiac for the coming Chinese year (10th February 2013 to 30th January 2014), the \”Snake\” (face value CHF 1.90). This stamp designed by Stefan Erne is again being issued as a silhouette produced using state-of-the-art laser technology. The sheetlet includes moreover an illustration and some Chinese characters alluding to the in China very popular \”Legend of the White Snake\”.
