Origami on stamps (2)


Some days ago I was wondering on this blog if there is any stamp picturing Origami art. I finally found some, almost by accident, while going through my Scott catalog. I found these three stamps. They are from Brazil. They have been issued the 11th of November 1988 and belong to the Christmas issue. They do not represent very academic Origami art but still, this is paper folding. The fist stamp on the left pictures an abbey with nuns, the one in the middle pictures the nativity and the last one, Santa Claus. And as you can see, Origami is mentioned in the legend of the stamps.
If you ever find other stamps picturing Origami I’m still interested to hear about them.
