Princely Treasures: Paintings
The works of art from the collections of the Prince of Liechtenstein are coveted stamp motifs. The Philately is presenting three paintings of the painter born in Antwerp, Jacques Jordaens (1593-1678), in its latest continuation of the “Princely Treasures” series. Together with the great masters Rubens and van Dyck, Jordaens is considered to be one of the major painters of the Flemish Baroque, who apart from a short stay in England in 1641, spent his entire life in Flanders. His œuvre includes large-format altarpieces, genre paintings, mythological and allegorical scenes and also designs for tapestries.

Year of Monkey
The motif of the special stamp was designed as a delicate paper cut and produced using ultramodern laser technology. The designer Stefan Erne chose the colour red, the symbol for luck in China, for the special commemorative sheetlet comprising four identical stamps.
All the prints are affixed in high-grade gold foil embossing. The 4-stamp sheetlet is also cut in the shape of a monkey.
