Vatican City Issues 2013 Easter Postage Stamp

First Day of Issue: February 28, 2013 - Vatican City

The Vatican City has issued their new postage stamp for Easter.

The subject chosen by the Philatelic and Numismatic Office for Easter this year is an image of Christ rising with open arms and an expression marked with suffer, symbolizing his passion and an undefined chaos which represents death.

The sculpture is the work of Italian artist Pericle Fazzini (1913-1987), and this year marks the centenary of his birth.
