Individual Stamps

0.45 Angel Gabriel

Captured in a spirited wave form, a messenger from God desends from the night sky.

1.40 Manger of Jesus

Jesus’ manger is nestled on the beach, safe under the stars and a protective palm tree. A guiding star above carries the good news to the shepherds.

2.00 The Shepherds

Guided by the stars, the turtles embody the shepherds swimming towards Jesus in his manger.

3.00 The Three Wise Men

In the form of waves, the three wise men follow the turtles carrying a vaka, a traditional vessel of the Pacific, here symbolising a gift for baby Jesus.
