Buildings of stamps

I am so amazed by this 4 m x 6.5 m stamp mosaic of HK's waterfront. The description says it took nearly 1 year for post service staff and their families to make, using used stamps collected locally and from 98 overseas postal administrations.

See the buildings in yesterday's photo? I almost couldn't resist posting multiple photos today, but click here and enlarge, you'll see the beautiful details.

Hi Lisi,

Nice shot and very clever to make it link up with yesterday's buildings. Any washing in the mosaic?

wow, that is unique art. Maybe I can make something!! Maybe not, mostly I get e-mail than traditional letter by post so I wont be saving many stamps.

That is a huge wall of stamps! Very Cool!

Amazing idea, great result, and very cool photo ! I have a friend who works for the Communication Departement of LA POSTE in France...She's gonna be soooo jealous of the idea when I show her your photo !

Wow I nearly can't imagine how they did this! I'm sure it's protected in some way...by glass or something? I hate to see grafitti all over it if it's not protected!

Very impressive and great tie to yesterdays post. Midnitebara had a good comment. Not as many stamps used given email on online bill payment.

this is so cool! and kinda sweet to know that it's the effort of postmen and their families.

Is it exhibited at Central?

Hi everybody,
Yes it deserves a lot of wows, but my photo does not do justice to it. I'm so glad you like it tho'.

Bob: no washing, this area is too expensive for hanging out laundry

Amande: the mosaic is indoor in the headquarters of the post service

Ham: here's more info

Wolf: yes, it is my HKDP partner!

Missiz Jones: welcome to HKDP and please show it to your friend, I saw some French stamps in it :-)

Ann: not much protection around it but it is in the headquarters and there are only about 30 staff working facing it ;-)

Siu Hang: Yes, it is in Central, do bring your camera and have a look if you're coming to HK

Thanks again!

Hello,
Without much luck, I was searching for blogs about Cell Phones when I happened across yours. It's a cool blog. Evidently you like telling it like it is! I have a really great ebay website that is easy to use that you may like. If you get a chance, check it out www.licensedbrandsclub.com.
