'Sailors' Valentines' stamps from Barbados


The Barbados post office has launched a new commemorative issue of stamps featuring "Sailors' Valentines".

The Sailors' Valentines represented in this issue were all made of natural color shells, collected mostly from Barbados beaches and around the world. These intricate works of art except for the $2.75 stamp image which was created by American shell artist Pamela Boynton, and the 10c which was made by a Barbadian artist, were all made by Barbadian Daphne Hunte who is well known locally and internationally for her Shell work and Sailors' Valentines creations.
