The stamps depict the donkey and the bear, main characters of the legend according to which Saint Marino domesticated the bear that killed his donkey. The illustrations are realized using small handcrafted rubber-stamps, hand built and carved, engraved in “crepla” rubber, provided of a cardboard handle, inked in three tints (yellow, red blue) with linographic colors. The shapes used to create the characters are the basic geometries of the circle, the triangle and the oval. The overlaps of the different rubber-stamped inked figures create games of shapes and colors, full and empty.
