  • The stamp is included in the PostEurop series of Europa stamps. The 2022 theme is stories & myths. The stamp illustrates the ‘sjörå’ as known from Åland folklore, and the motif is largely based on stories recorded in the 1890s in Åland. The sjörå is a female water nymph who rules the sea and the lakes. Her beauty only extends to the front; from behind, she is a hollow stump. The sjörå, also known as mistress of the sea, is closely related to the mermaid. The water nymph has her own pots and pans of glittering copper that she scrubs by the lake shore, and she keeps her own livestock. The sjörå keeps a pike as a pet, so, be careful if you catch a particularly large pike! PLEASE NOTE! DELIVERY AFTER DATE OF ISSUE
