Republic of Cyprus Stamps 14 November 2019
Cyprus Stamps "Christmas 2019"

The representations on the two €0.34 and €0.41 cent stamps take us to the festive spirit of the great holiday of Christmas.

The €0.64 cent stamp illustrates the mural painting of the worshipping Panagia Arakiotissa and Kecharitomeni (Our Lady of Araka full of Grace) from the Church of Araka in Lagoudera dating back to 1192. This masterpiece of Arakiotissa is unique as to its content and symbolisms. The posture of Jesus leaning in his mother hands reminds us of the image of Christ-child as eucharistic symbol in Melismos. The characteristic earring wom by the Jesus has been interpreted by a passage of the Exodus and with verses of the Old Τestament in relation to the Passover sacrifice which is read in churches on the holiday of Candlemas.

Design: Doxia Sergidou

Available in sets of 3 stamps, full sheets of 8 stamps per sheet (3 sheets per set) and on 2 Post Office Official FDCs.
