The Stone Carrier

Many ethnic sporting events are often celebrated on postage stamps. This example, Le porteur de pierre (The stone carrier) was created by the Polynesian government in 1988. Stone lifting contests have been a part of the culture of the Polynesian islands for thousands of years and still take place during their cultural festivals. The image is by the noted artist.
