Europa, Stories & myths -mint

This year’s theme in the Europa stamp series is stories and myths. In its Europa stamps, Posti presents two goddesses mentioned in Kalevala poems, among other works.

On the shape-cut stamps, Päivätär and Kuutar spin gold and silver yarn from the rays of the sun and the moon, from which gold and silver clothes are knit. Illustrator Emmi-Riikka Vartiainen: “I drew Päivätär and Kuutar as young virgins who are timeless nature deities of celestial bodies, out of reach of the concepts and laws of everyday life. They are metaphors for the beauty of nature and the power of the sun and the moon. I wanted the illustrations of the characters to have that same mystical power”
