This year's traditional Christmas stamp was based on the painting, "Madonna and Child With Saints," by Giovanni Bellini. A member of the Bellini family of painters during the Italian Renaissance, he helped develop a type of painting known as sacra conversazione (holy conversation), featuring the Madonna and Child in an interior setting with two or more saints.
