Sculptures Inspired by Postage Stamps

 

Just before the new millennium I became preoccupied for two years with an old hobby of mine postage stamps. Those tiny bits of paper often capture a notable feeling for what designers wish to project as attractive or unique in their country. Many of these miniatures display exquisite artistic compositions.

 

Since I was preparing for two exhibitions in the United States, I started with two dozen carvings of American postal themes. Nine of the twenty‑four were sold there. Later I completed twenty Canadian and other postage stamps.

I felt like projecting a Canadian counterpart of four Prime Ministers of Canada.
