Heebee Post #723 - Wolfgang Skodd - Dortmund - Germany

 Otherwise known as the Banana Man, long time mail artist Wolfgang Skodd sends in his "No Bananas today" postcard adorned with a very interesting looking artistamp.
 I thought this terrific stamp needed a closer inspection. It is about 3 inches long. It appears as if this stamp was originally made by accomplished French mail artist Pascal Lenoir in 2008. A separate, smaller stamp was placed over the original. The smaller artistamp celebrates the unparalleled Cavellini and is a Bruno Chiarlone creation. The "Changed my art" tiny stickers were also added. This is a very enjoyable artistamp! How Wolf came to have it is another interesting aspect.
The reverse side of the card is rather interesting as well. There is some puzzling evidence here involving some kind of cover-up! I love this card Wolfgang. The German postage is pretty great too. Thank you very much my friend. See you in the post! Banana Underground.

  1. What an interesting blog, introduced by a thought-provoking photo. The unusual wall painting of the dwellings is also a strangely modern interpretation. Something like this hieroglyphic view of a park by Swiss painter Paul Klee, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT475.
    The image can be seen at wahooart.com who can supply you with a canvas print of it.
