Musical Instruments of the Middle East on Israeli Stamps

The main theme in each of the five stamps is an ancient Eastern instrument accompanied by a modern Western instrument whose roots may be traced back to that Eastern instrument.

The stamps feature:

- Darbuka and Drum
- Zurna and Oboe
- Qanun and Piano
- Oud and Guitar
- Rabbaba and Violin

The stamp tabs and lower sections feature Oriental rugs from the Middle East and Central Asia.
