Hello, tonight I hope you will enjoy this MS from Hong Kong to celebrate the Year of the Ram, as you can see it is termed here.

This $10 stamp sheetlet showcases a cloisonné ram.  Cloisonné is a traditional Chinese handicraft. In making cloisonné ware, cloisons (fine copper wires) are soldered onto red copper objects in a pattern to be filled in with enamel and then fired, polished and gilded

Best wishes.. Michael
