Faroe Islands 1985, Rinkusteinar in Oyndarfjørður.
Rinkusteinar are two large massive boulders, they are located a few meters from shore, just before the entrance to the village. Legend says, that an old sorceress cursed two pirate ships that were menacing the village - turning them to stone and condemning them to an eternity of restless rocking, tantalizingly close a forbidden shore.
The stamp was issued in the series "Paintings by Edward Dayes".
