Motif Old Village Centre

A new series with village views depicting all the local communities of the Liechtenstein Oberland begins with the community of Triesen. The stamp "Old Village Centre" (face value: CHF 2.00) shows the community with around 5,200 inhabitants embedded in a typical Liechtenstein landscape between the mountains and the Rhine. The view is directed southwards from the higher part of the village St. Mamerta. The second stamp focuses on the "Lady Chapel Triesen" (face value: CHF 1.30). It was first mentioned in writing in 1415 as the "Chapel of the Virgin Mary in the Village of Triesen". In 1654, the sacred building was extended to include just one wall of the initial late Romanesque building. More recently, in 1964 and in 2002, the chapel underwent two extensive renovations. Graphic artist Karin Beck decided on a high-contrast design for the new stamps: While the photographs of the actual view of the village and the buildings are kept in black and white, the landscape in the background serves as a colour-graduated backdrop, giving the landscape the desired depth effect.
