Postage Stamp Collage---
This portrait depicting Martin Luther King was created from over 4000 used British and American postage stamps. His dream for a just and equal society was fulfilled when Barack Obama was elected as American President for his ability not because of race, colour or creed. In Martin Luther King’s portrait symbolism runs through the design but is especially seen on his shirt where the ‘Liberty Bell’ “proclaims liberty throughout all the land”. A colourful tie is made up from the Statue of Liberty stamp while the shadow on his shirt collar is made up from a stamp depicting a ballot box “to caste a free vote, the root of democracy”.
