"Beautiful Homeland"
Issue date: 13th October 2011

The special issue stamp set "Good New Homeland" is reflecting the new look of areas, hit by the May 12, 2008 earthquake in China's southwestern Sichuan Province (Min Shan). It was released on October 13 at a ceremony in Chengdu, capital city of Sichuan.

The "Good New Homeland" special issue comprises a set of four stamps named "New City after Quake", "New Look of the Old City", "Reconstruction for the People", "New Village Households" and one sheet of miniature stamps named "Good New Life."

China 2011, souvenirsheet "Good New Life"

It seems that the souvenirsheet reflects the view from the Sichuan Basin to West or Northwest, because the foreground is showing the flatness and fertile grounds of it.

The distinctive mountain with its twin peak towering over the Sichuan Basin does not correspond with the view of a majorpeak of the Sichuan region (Min Shan mountains / for example: Siguniang massif, Xuebaonding or Jiudingshan). It seems to be a composition of the artist to reflect the mountain landscape of the earthquake region of Wenchuan, also known Wenzhuan in the Min Shan mountains.
