Commemorative Issue: Christmas 2002

The BaptismThe AngelsThe Nativity

The Church of Metamorphosis Sotiros at Palechori has been included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in the year 2001. It is situated at the northeaster edge of the village. It is a small single aisle church with a steep pitched wooden roof. It was build most probably in the early 16th century and was decorated with wall paintings. Unfortunately, the inscription with the donor's name is badly damaged and the name is illegible as is the date of its construction and decoration. The interior of the church, except the roof, is covered with wall paintings. The wall painting depicting the Birth of Christ is high on the south wall of the church and follows the usual iconographic style even though it is somewhat more simplified. In the middle the Virgin is depicted lying on a mattress, while the infant is in the manger. On the left side in the lower part Joseph is sitting without the presence of the shepherds. More to the right the bath of the infant and in the right corner sheep are depicted drinking from a spring. On the left, more or less in the middle of the painting, the three Wise Men can be seen, while in the right corner a sitting shepherd is depicted hearing from the Angel the glad tidings of the Birth of Christ. In the upper left corner three Angels are depicted. This year's Christmas series consists of three stamps. The 30 cent stamp depicts the wall painting of the Birth of Christ while the 13 and 25 cent stamps depict details from the above mentioned wall painting.
