René Magritte is one of the most well known surrealistic artists of the 20th century. He was intent on re-thinking reality and observing the common place absurdly and the absurd commonly. It is indeed an enchanted country.
This 2-sheet set of artistamps features images from his several panel mural that can be seen in the Knokke-le-Zoute Casino in Belgium. Created in 1953, the mammoth mural measures 71.3 meters round and 4.3 meters high.
Presented in two 5 by 6 inches sheets of 6 stamps each, with water-activated adhesive in the fashion of traditional postage. Each Artistamp is approximately 1-9/16 by 2 inches. Even the edges are printed with portions of the evocative mural!
Please remember that these are faux postes and not to be used to replace the true postage necessary for mailing!
