Poland : Souvenir Sheet for Beijing Olympic Games 2008

Thanks to Andrzej Bek.......... :)

Poland has issued an impressive portfolio of stamps to celebrate the 2008 Olympics.
The colorful stamps present 4 out of the 28 Olympic disciplines: swimming, volleyball, the pole vault and fencing.
The stamps are placed together in a block on the background of a traditional Chinese wood carving and the word "Beijing" written in its original form.
The design of the First Day Cover includes the same illustration, added with a photograph of the new Beijing stadium called the "Bird's Nest".
