Stamp of Chennai - 1: A scanned image of the miniature sheet with an image of the more than 100-years-old Museum Theatre. This sheet and the stamps were released by the Depart of Posts in 2003 as a part of the 150th anniversary of the Museum. Some details from the information sheet: The first stamp is one of Shiva in Natesa form, a 12th century AD bronze from Thanjavur. The second stamp is a picture of the century-old Museum Theatre, a heritage building in semi-circular shape, and the third is a sculptured medallion (150 AD) from Amravati figures. The other figures on the sheet are a selection of exhibits from the museum.  Posted by Picasa
