Traditional Chinese art forms feature on Year of the Tiger stamps

The first stamp issue for 2010 in Australia commemorates the start of the 2010 Lunar New Year and the Year of the Tiger.

The stamps feature an ancient form of Chinese art - paper cut motifs - to pictorially render the Tiger in the 55 cent stamp. It is complemented by a $1.65 stamp that shows how this pictorial representation developed into the Chinese character for the Tiger.
