Philippine Mythical Creatures – so gorgeous and terrifying

May 14th, 2015 got to know that the Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost) released "Philippine Mythical Creatures" special limited edition souvenir sheet stamps in line with the country's participation to the recently concluded "Taipei 2015 – the 30th Asian International Stamp Exhibition" in Taiwan.

The 2015 exhibition offered an exciting venue for stamp collectors to promote stamp collecting, exchange ideas between postal administrations worldwide and learn from each other on how to expand their philately boundaries.

Four Philippine mythical creatures were featured in the special souvenir sheet stamps: NunosaPunso (goblin of the mound), Sirena (Mermaid), Si Malakas at siMaganda( Strong one and beautiful one) and Diwata: (Fairy) Maria Sinukuan. These are typical Filipino folk literature or stories associated mostly in rural parts of the country.
