5th February 2019 marks the start of the next Chinese New Year when the animal sign will be the Pig, as depicted on our stamps, which are the sixth set in our Chinese New Year series.
The intricate stamp designs are the work of talented Sydney-based artist Chrissy Lau, who has worked across the entire Chinese New Year series. We are fortunate to be working with Chrissy, as she understands Chinese culture and can create striking yet symbolically significant designs.
Each of our stamps reflects the pig’s cultural association with an abundance of wealth and prosperity with the Chinese symbol for pig depicted in red on each stamp.
