Felt on acrylic paint, tea stain

If an oversized stamp existed and we saw the photo of it, how we could imagined this was an oversized stamp? Well, we see a building. But we really see it, we really know it?

The theme of this oversized stamps is the hidden connection between Japan, Singapore and England in WW2, especially based on the book of English scientist, Dr.E.J.H. Corner. This book told a friendship between these three countries in the period of the war, and the mein scene of the story is the Shonan Museum, currently called National Museum of Singapore. This museum was the place entrusted the hope at that time, to save Singapore culture and history from looters. Currently, this museum turned to the hisoty museum, however they dosen’t mention about the story of hope but only the story of terrible enemies.

This stamp constructed some element of the three countories. Mail servise originated in UK. The design of the stamp followed the actual stamp published in Singapore under Japanese occupation. Tea leaves were being deliverd from Japan to England via Singapore.
