Fantastic Dutch stamp: Golden Earring

Golden Earring / Moontan stamp from the Netherlands

This stamp just arrived in my mailbox today, riding on a Postcrossing postcard from the Netherlands. I've never seen this stamp before, and I don't even know who Golden Earring/Moontan is, other than that they seem to be a music group. But WOW, what a stamp image! That's quite a headdress the nearly-naked lady is wearing. Are those ostrich feathers on her head?

...just a brief break in my crazy February to marvel at the wonderful world of postage stamps...

Oh, and Happy Valentine's Day!
