With the Easter holiday approaching, true to its traditions Hungary Post is issuing a new postage stamp.

The stamp offered as a festive decoration to adorn cards and letters in 2009 is based on a work by the painter Zoltan Reti entitled Shepherd's Cross.

In the middle of the composition in the distance there is a shepherd in a black hat surrounded by white lambs, the harbingers of spring and renascence. In the foreground life-giving ears of wheat can be seen beneath the blue sky. The painting is also a portrayal of Christ crucified.

The first day cover features the painting "Outdoor Mass" by the same artist.

The design of the special postmark employs a detail of the painting on the cover, the stylised Christ crucified in front of the church.
