Princely Treasures - Sculptures of Antico - FDC Set - First Day Cover for only GBP £5.62
With bronze sculptures from the collections of the Prince of Liechtenstein, Philately Liechtenstein is continuing its popular multi-part series "Princely Treasures". The three objects by Italian sculptor Pier Jacopo Alari-Bonacolsi (c. 1455 to 1528) each fit on a miniature sheet of nine stamps. The artist, known by his nickname Antico, saw his life's work as being the revival and preservation of the sculptural art of antiquity. He recreated the compositions of famous classical statues in numerous exceptionally detailed works.
