Patagon, a bicentennial stamp

 
Patagon, a stamp
Bicentennial Stamp - Patagon (15 pesos), 2010. Copyright © 2007 by Austin Whittall


A new "stamp" depicting a pair of Patagon natives. It is a copy of a copperplate engraving showing two native Patagonians. It is from the "Description d'Univers" dated 1683 prepared by Allain Manneson Mallet, a French geographer and engineer (1630 - 1706).

It is the first of a "Bicentennial Series" which will depict different Patagonian scenes.

The Patagons (Tehuelche) seem to be a man and a woman (left). She is fair haired, which is quite surprising. I have not seen any reports on blond Patagons. For more on these people, who were described as Giants, see my post on the Giants of Patagonia.

Note: This stamp like all the Argentine mail stamps that I have published in this blog, is not official, it was designed by me for my blog.
