THE SLOVAK Post (Slovenská pošta) issued on March 1 the “Easter 2013: Folk Themes in the Work of Ľudovít Fulla” postage stamp, with a nominal value of €0.45.

“The postage stamp is issued on print sheets with 50 stamps, and this year, they contain a tulip fragrance,” spokesperson of the Slovak Post Stanislava Pondelová informed the TASR newswire.

The main motif of the stamp is an Easter egg decorated with folk patterns. The stamp’s ornamental design references the work of Ľudovít Fulla, a key figure in modern, 20th Century Slovak painting, whose work was inspired by folk iconography.

The First-Day Cover (FDC), designed by Robert Jančovič and also inspired by the work of Ľudovít Fulla, was recently issued as well, and depicts an allegory of the re-birth in the form of a crucified Christ set in typical folk Easter themes – an egg and a bunny. The Slovak Post also issued on this occasion a pictorial post card with a pre-printed stamp on the address side. More information can be found – also in English – on the www.pofis.sk website.
