~ Stamp No. 60: Libya ~
Scott Catalogue No. 598

Yet another Libyan painting of a Zukra. The ornamental fish is interesting, and is also seen on the next stamp. The artist's positioning of the pipe is odd, with the double-chanter sticking straight up and the blowpipe downward, but the detail is nice. By the way, these blowpipes are sometimes made of the hollow wingbone of a bird. For more about the Zukra, see this page, here on this site (use your "back" button to return here).
