Latest Easter Stamps by Croatia, Vatican City and Slovakia

31 Mar 2018  Sat

Croatia, Vatican City, and Slovakia issued new Easter stamps on 15th March, 6th February, and 27th February respectively.

The new 3.10-kuna Croatian stamp recreates a painting by Mile Skracic of Jesus being taken down from the Cross. It belongs to a series of paintings that were created for the Stations of the Cross at the Church of the Immaculate Conception of Mary in Dubrave, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The new 95ยข Vatican City issue recreates a painting called Risen Christ by Spanish artist Raul Berzosa, whose works have been shown on many other stamps.

The nondenominated domestic-rate Easter stamp of Slovakia features a detail from an embroidered chalice veil that is now showcased at the Slovak National Museum. An image of a crown and a pelican representing Christ, feeding its young with its blood, is featured at the centre. A symbolic cross made of white dots is featured at the lower left.
