Commemorative Postal Issue: Christmas 2019 – 1st Size Commercial Letter Correios do Brasil
Description:
In the art created by Giana, the Christmas scene – represented by the star, the garland, the pine tree and the house number – has as its central figure the little girl carrying a letter addressed to Santa Claus. His image represents the innocent, unblocked, free and kind part that each person carries within, from which we can recover our most sincere desires. The idea of ​​this art is to say that a reality can come from a dream, from an intention, and that Correios, as a centenary institution, participates in this moment. The letter is the messenger who affirms the possibility of materializing our dreams in transcribing to paper. The dog represents loyalty and friendship. The shadows cast on the wall suggest universal values ​​such as love, unity, and peace, symbolized respectively by the heart, the family, and a little dove.
