Snail-riding Pixies

UK mythical creatures: Pixies

Here is another fantastic issue in the UK Mythical Creatures stamp set, which I blogged about in greater detail earlier.

Of course I love that the pixie is riding a snail (even with a fabulous harness)... Could he be making a snail-mail delivery, perhaps?

Looking at the beautiful and subtle wavy lines over the stamp makes me marvel at how much more artful UK stamp cancellations are than those in the USA. Or is the grass just greener on the other side of the pond?
