Sunday Stamps II 106

Goodness it is Sunday (as well as being Christmas) and time for Sunday Stamps.

The theme this week is religious Christmas stamps.  The US Postal Service always has a classic Madonna and child stamp, and this year it is

From the USPS website:

"This Christmas stamp features a detail of Madonna and Child, a 15th-century tempera-on-panel painting.

Clad with a white veil over her head and a red garment trimmed in gold and partially covered with a gold-trimmed blue cloak, a haloed Virgin Mary gazes downward and to the right, looking at a blond, haloed Christ Child while placing her right hand on his shoulder. Behind both figures is a hedge of pink and white roses, with blue sky visible through their thorny, leafy stalks."

Happy holidays everyone.

I am getting used to the Madonna issues, but I haven't seen this one yet.

The roses background is lovely.
