Odd Shaped Stamps and Sheets - Brazil Pt3

A dove/bird shaped sheet commemorating the 16th National Eucharistic Congress in Brazil was issued on 13th May 2010.

This block of stamps depicts famous architectural monuments in Brazil: the stamp on the right shows the Catetinho (the first official residence of the President of the Republic in the new capital) and the statue of Juscelino Kubitschek (located in the JK Memorial). The stamp on the left shows the Metropolitan Cathedral and the logo of the XVI National Eucharistic Congress.

The sheet portrays on the left, the logo of the 50th anniversary of Brazil; in the center, the Candangos Statue and on the borders one can see the country’s newest and most beautiful architectural works – the National Museum (next to the National Library/Cultural Complex of the Republic) and the JK Bridge.
