Switzerland 2015
Human Surface - Skin






A human organ is taking center stage in the latest Swiss Post stamp issue: To celebrate the 56th Art Biennale in Venice, the artist Pamela Rosenkranz, born in the Canton of Uri in 1979, made skin a theme in the Swiss pavilion in her design for this year’s version of the stamp which has accompanied the Biennale since 2010.

The special stamp represents a piece of the largest functional organ in the human body and features a tactile surface, modelled on skin. With a face value of 1 franc, it is available as a single stamp, a block of four or a sheetlet with ten stamps. Swiss Post has issued a stamp to celebrate the Biennale every year since 2010.
