La Poste de France celebrates the New Year of the Chinese lunar calendar with stamps dedicated to – The Year of the Ox

La Poste de France is celebrating the New Year of the Chinese lunar calendar with two blocks of stamps dedicated to the “Year of the Ox”, and an issuing ceremony was held in Paris on Saturday.

A stamp block shows a boy holding a plum blossom on the back of a buffalo carrying a large red flower. With a face value of 1.08 euro, it applies to domestic mail in France. The other, with a profile of a buffalo, its head held high and a large, luminous flower around its neck, has a face value of 1.50 euros for international mail.

Both stamp blocks were made by Paris-based Chinese artist Chen Jiang Hong. A preview sale was organized on February 5 and 6 and the official sale will take place from Monday, February 8 in certain post offices, at the “Le Carré d’Encre” boutique and on the website of The post office.

“I created these two stamp blocks as an ode to nature, to show our love and respect,” artist Chen Jiang Hong told Media, adding, “I used many colors, trying to convey a sense of tranquility. “

“2020 has been an unusual year, as many people have experienced difficulties. I hope the Year of the Ox will bring more happiness,” said the artist.

The Year of the Ox runs from February 12, 2021, to January 31, 2022. In Chinese culture, the Ox is a tenacious and determined animal, which reassures and protects, which loves stability and traditions. It is also a sign of deep and lasting friendship.
