Year of the Monkey - 1992

This is a maximum card from the People's Republic of China for the 1992 Year of the Monkey. The design also features the "auspicious peach' which is a symbol for good luck and longevity. The stamp was designed by the means of Chinese folk paper-cut.

I am participating in Sunday Stamps at Viridian's Postcard Blog


  1. The mom monkey and baby make a nice design. The USPS stamp for this year has a pretty nice design I think. Thanks for participating!

  2. My China stamps are very mundane compared with these.

    There was no linksy on viridian's site this morning. I hope yo can find my post.

  3. I did not know about the peach, but I like how they incorporated the monkey into the fruit.

  4. Love that paper cut, the spring flower being offered is a nice touch.

  5. You have the coolest stamps and postcards! I like the references to prosperity.
