Description

The subjects for Fun & Liberty 2012 are paragliding and diving. These two stamps were issued in September 2012.

They are n° 9 and 10 in the series, and were designed and drawn by Timo Wuerz, a German artist.

« When it comes to stamps I work exclusively with P&TLuxembourg. I am always very happy when they make such a request because I really like to create stamps and to collaborate with P&TLuxembourg », says an enthusiastic Timo Wuerz.

The instructions provided were not a great challenge for this freelance artist:

« I have tried paragliding. this has allowed me to recreate the perspective of a paraglider floating in the air. For the other image, I have long been in favour of the protection of nature and animals, and I have personal contacts with the population and government of the Maldives. The subject of diving and the undersea world was therefore a good opportunity for me, offering many multicoloured fish. All the fish included on the stamp are also found in nature ».
