I found these tonight being a lover of stamps and anything Monaco to me this is a very cool find. Great cars and fashion as well as a paradise of style.

Note:
During a transition period in 2000-2001 all Monegasque stamps had two denominations, in Francs, and in Euro. Beginning in 2002 their only denomination is in Euro.

It is beyond all doubt, that Albuisson likes veteran cars :-) Just look at this wonderful set of seven beautiful cars, combined with the fashion of their time, issued in 2000.

Ranging from the Humber in 1911 to the Lamborghini Countach 1946, they are all sophistication beyond description.

Design by Merot and engravings by Albuisson.
  • Monaco 2000. Veteran Cars combined with Fashion of Their Time.


Humber 1911, Type Beeston



Ferrari F1 - 1989



Fiat 600 Jolly 1966



Jaguar 1947



Citroën C4F Autochenille 1929



Rolls Royce Silver Cloud 1956



Lamborghini Countach 1986

More to follow from this site its loaded with Monaco yummies. I'll take the Rolls Royce Silver Cloud 1956. A man who had just brought flowers to my Mom and I dated his son I asked would he take me for a drive in his new car sitting in our drive. No help yourself the keys are under the mat on the drivers side. I thought the man was crazy but did I argue? No way and Mom was on my rear out the door for the ride. She had no idea where the wiper switch was watch out where I was going don't I dare hit anything. It was a special ordered Rolls with less than a hundred miles. What an experience better then being thrown in the back of a limo as a kid to me to drive that. My parents loved the limo putting the window up they didn't have to hear the 'he's touching me.'

For the International Stamp Exhibition in Madrid 2000, this stamp was issued, showing the front of the Principal Post Office of Madrid, with the sculpture of "The Bear and the Strawberry-Tree" [Arbutus Unedo L.].

A very nice and well done stamp with a lot of good humour.

Quote:
In 1501, when Michelangelo was only 26 years old, he returned to Florence after a long absence. There he produced two free-standing sculptures, the Madonna and Child (1501-1505, Notre Dame, Bruges). The major work of this period is the colossal (4.34 m/143 ft) marble David (1501-1504, Accademia, Florence). Stamp design by Irio-Ottavio Fantini, engraving by Albuisson. The Old Testament hero is depicted as a lithe, naked youth, muscular and alert, looking into the distance as if sizing up the enemy Goliath, whom he has not yet encountered. When sculpting this statue Michelangelo is quoted to have expressed that
"When I saw this piece of marble, I knew immediately that David was inside. My job would be to cut the excess marble away to reveal him".

The statue, which symbolized the fortitude of the Florentine republic, originally stood in the Piazza della Signoria in front of the Palazzo Vecchio, the Florentine town hall. (A copy now stands in the piazza.)

The fiery intensity of David’s facial expression exemplifies the terribilità (emotional intensity) that is characteristic of many of Michelangelo’s figures and of his own personality, and the whole figure demonstrates his mastery of the male nude.

Monaco 2001. Michelangelo: David
From the site I couldn't pass up what was written with it. I love art, beauty and life of our past to say where we come from. Where all of us come from. We owe so much to our ancestors and we don't always give them create when they are the ones who gave each of us life from their being. Its up to us to be sure our children and theirs have a world to live in where they can breath in the sun light and smell flowers blooming in a field where the deer roam freely and the children play.
