About Stamp

This stamp celebrates the Nativity.

Perfect for sending holiday greetings to friends and family, this colourful stamp features the Italian renaissance masterpiece The Adoration of the Shepherds by Florentine artist Tommaso di Stefano Lunetti. This masterpiece is a vibrant oil-on-panel painting and was based on Luke’s gospel, in which angels announced the birth of Jesus to shepherds, who then rushed from their fields to find their newborn saviour. The serene, symmetrical work is part of the collection at the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto.
