Sunday Stamps - (K) Karate World Championship in France 2012

For the letter K - Karate
2012 - France - Sport (Sporting events)
Printer: Phil@Poste Boulazac

I came across a very informative post about the mini-series containing this stamp while researching about it. The post can be found here. Saves me some typing time (wink).

I would say though that I love how the Eiffel Tower is depicted with brushstrokes here against a bright red sun. Simple yet beautiful fusion of French and Japanese icons.
