|The Secret Assembly of Vostitsa by Kostas Klouvatos (1923-2007)|
Greece Stamp Issued 1975
This is an engraving by an artist who is more known for his sculptures. Klouvatos' work during the 1960s was focused on critical points in the history of Greece. This one focuses on 26th September of 1820, where all dignitaries of Peloponnese (Moreas) gathered, and Pappaflessas (a Greek Revolutionary hero) is trying to convince them that a revolution should be launched. Klouvatos attempted to combine elements of Greek tradition with various styles through the ages, thus accounting for this depiction of Pappa Flessas. The stamp was part of a series that commemorated the 150th Anniversary of the death of Papa Flessas.
