and discover the stamps inside, including their air mail stickers plus a description of the sports.
Posti's website calls this set 'Finnish Oddity', sports that are just the thing for those fun filled long sunlit days of summer - wife carrying, boot throwing, air guitar, old geezer carting, ant nest sitting and swamp football. The designs are by the Finnish painter Bruno Maximus who is influenced by surrealism, his style is described as "hypnotic, dreamlike realism". I've seen another painting of his of the ant sitting 'sport' with a giant human sized ant which is even funnier. Believe me nothing moves me as fast to a standing position as discovering I've parked myself by an ant's nest whatever size the ant is.
