The stamp art illustrates the traditional tale of the Magi, who came bearing gifts for Jesus.? The three regal figures sit atop a trio of bedecked and harnessed camels, the animals almost at the summit of a small hill.? Guiding them is a large, dazzling star shining in the sky.? The colors in the sky range from a rose near the horizon, darkening to a rich purple at the top, suggesting that the travelers are moving through the desert at dawn.? The figures are silhouetted against the background, with the details of their headdresses and the camels?? saddles just visible in the brightening light.
