Description

a. Four stamps are arranged on paper. Each has concentric circles, or a bullseye with very thin rings. Three are from Brazil (Brasil) and one is from the Netherlands (Nederland). The stamps are blue, white, gray, and black.

b. Four stamps are arranged on paper. Each has geometric shapes and is in a different color. Clockwise from top left are a square (yellow), a polygon with curved sides (white), a grid with an empty horizontal space (gray), and overlapping ovals (blue). They are from the Netherlands (Nederland).

c. Image of circuitry executed in pink, blue, white, and gray.

d. Hologram of a rose in bloom

e. 3D laser print of a rose. At first glance the print is simply pink, blue, and white swirls, but if the viewer trains their eyes a rose will appear.
