To mark the opening of the new Canadian Museum of Civilization building, Canada Post Corporation will issue the second stamp in the Masterpieces of Canadian Art series. This year's is a 50-cent commemorative showing a magnificent Ceremonial Frontlet, a headpiece worn by chiefs of the Tsimshian west coast Indians. Made of wood with abalone shell and black stone inlay, the frontlet is part of the Canadian Museum of Civilization's collection. This stamp repeats the general design created by Montreal graphic designer Pierre-Yves Pelletier for the Masterpieces of Canadian Art series with last year's issue of The Young Reader. The printing of these stamps is quite complex; they are foil stamped in two colours and printed in lithography in six colours.
