World's Largest Postage Stamp

June 29th, 2007

Acclaimed Kansas artist Stan Herd created a two-acre replica of the Southern Dogface butterfly stamp from one of the four Pollinator stamps.

Herd's creation, the world's largest living stamp, is made up of only plants and other natural materials and is on a family farm outside of Lawrence, Kansas.

"We planted 3,000 marigolds, 2,000 petunias, thousands of soybean plants, and used 40,000 thousand pounds of sand, 20 cucumbers, and 150 bales of hay," said Herd at the unveiling earlier this week on June 25.
