Polish Stamp Earrings - Vanitas

Details

Intriguing postage stamps from Poland, titled “Vanitas,” issued in 2003. If you look closely, the woman’s lovely face is shadowed by a skull. The stamp reproduces a 1995 painting by Wieslaw Walkuski (Polish, born 1956), made for an exhibition on Sarmatian burial traditions.
.
The Sarmatians were Persian-speaking nomads who migrated from the southern Urals to Eastern Europe about 2400 years ago. One of their burial traditions was to place in the grave a deliberately broken mirror.
.
These elegant stamps are trimmed in faux pearls with a dark tea patina, and faceted lucite.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

I grew up in Asia, mainly Japan. I love the Japanese aesthetic, and was thrilled to find a way to wear stamps! Japan issued a line of these stamps, and this image is my favorite: nestled in red and gold.
