The stamps depict the children’s ’drawings which represent a fragment from “Qaj Nazar” (“Nazar the Brave”) folk tale, “Seven stones” Armenian national game and a “Family through a child’s vision” picture.
Nazar the Brave, a fairy tale by Armenian writer Hovhannes Tumanyan. In Armenia Qaj Nazar (The Brave Nazar) is a symbol for cowardness, but in other countries he is much more a wise character.
Pittu Garam (Seven Stones) is a traditional Armenian game played between two teams. The game requires a tennis ball and set of seven stones which can be stacked up to form a small tower. The aim of the game is to be able to break the tower and then rebuild it before getting hit by one of the opponent.
