New Stamp Issue, 11 November

Christmas 2016 – The Birth of Jesus, Meister von Raigern

With a loving gaze, Mary, the mother of Jesus, bends over her child. Her baby boy is before her, she kneels and folds her hands in prayer. The angels with their huge wings also worship Jesus, while one of them brings the joyful message to one of the shepherds. In the background, the ox and the donkey eat in the straw-covered stable, which is lit by a bright star. This is a painting displayed at the Vienna Kunsthistorisches Museum based on which this special-issue stamp was created.

On the day of issue, the special post office will be cancelling mail items with the special first-day postmark.

When? 11 November 2016 from 9:00 to 1:00 p.m.
Where? VÖPh, Getreidemarkt 1, 1060 Vienna
