It includes three crucial strands of Bhutan’s cultural heritage:
- Bhutanese Zodiac Signs on Stamp
Issued in 2022, this colorful stamp sheet features the 12 zodiac signs of Bhutan (Lokhor Chunye) and depicts the theme of WATER MALE TIGER YEAR. It is believed that each sign has its strengths and weaknesses, its specific traits, desires, and attitude toward life and people.
2. Atsara of Bhutan on Stamp
The stamp collection, issued in September 2015, is designed based on the theme of Atsara, or holy clowns, of Bhutan. The sheet consists of six miniature stamps portraying the playful nature of Atsara. Atsara is an integral part of many Bhutanese festivals and rituals. The red-faced comical characters generally entertain the crowd at Tshechus.
