New Year Greeting 2011-Year of Rabbit FDC from TAIWAN

FDC Name:New year Greeting
Issue Date:1st DEC'2010
The Rabbit ( 兔 ) (also translated as Hare) is the fourth animal in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac. The Year of the Rabbit is associated with the earthly branch symbol 卯.To welcome the year of the Rabbit, Chunghwa Post has issued a set of two New Year’s Greeting Postage Stamps and a souvenir sheet. 
The designs find inspiration in modern art styles, such as action painting and pop art. The motif rabbits are depicted using black silhouettes that are adorned with orange and purple paint splatters, which create lively compositions. The backgrounds, which are yellow with random red splatters, cleverly make use of traditional Chinese ink-wash effects. The bright colors symbolize joy and convey high expectations about the Year of the Rabbit. The designs are described below:
1.NT$3.50 Stamp:This pair of rabbits conveys the idea of “the treasuring of each other” and symbolizes a year of abundance.Quantity printed:4,000,00
2.NT$13.00 Stamp: Featuring a rabbit looking off into the distance, this image represents “achieving success in all one’s endeavors.”Quantity Printed:14,000.00
3.NT$12.00 Souvenir Sheet: This image of a hopping rabbit represents the idea of “surpassing oneself” and “bounding toward a future of personal transcendence.”Quantity Printed:14,000.00
Remark:Thanks Chen for sending both the miniature sheet and stamp FDC to me on the issue date.The year of rabbit FDC and cancellations are excellent.Even the local post office cancellation is also good.
