Happy Easter

1978: Easter - Paintings by Giotto
I start the Easter journey with Christ entering into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday with all his travails before him.  The fresco is in the Scrovegni Chapel, Padua, Giotto's masterpiece, no space left unpainted and vaulted over by a blue starry sky.  Sensory overload.
1971: Easter - Flowers
Easter has lots of symbolic flowers and trees but apart from the fact it flowers in Spring I don't know about the Yellow Trumpet Tree, perhaps it is the palm shaped leaves or even the thought of the trumpets of heaven.
1999: Easter (Design - Maglena Konstaninova)
No problem with the meaning of this exuberant painting of flowers and decorated eggs, pure joy. Happy Easter to you all.

It's nice to see these very different stamps, from different countries/traditions.
