Scott Catalogue No. 895

Now this is more like it - quite a contrast to the previous Austrian stamp. This is an engraving of a part of Breugel's famous painting, "Peasants Dancing." (The entire painting is shown on stamp no. 26.) The bagpipe is a basic type once found throughout the low countries, through Germany and into Austria and Switzerland. It is represented on our "Bagpipes of the World" CD album, and can be seen in detail on this site at this location (use your browser's "back" button to return here).
