Flag of Laos

Laos, officially the Lao People's Democratic Republic, is a landlocked socialist republic communist state in southeast Asia, bordered by Myanmar (Burma) and the People's Republic of China to the northwest, Vietnam to the east, Cambodia to the south, and Thailand to the west. Laos traces its history to the Kingdom of Lan Xang or Land of a Million Elephants, which existed from the 14th to the 18th century. After a period as a French colony, it gained independence in 1945. A long civil war ended when the communist Pathet Lao came to power in 1975.

Marc Leguay, a French artist, lived in Laos for many years. He designed most of stamps of the Kingdom of Laos (1951-1975). He had a number of concubinage and 20 children! They were all used as models for his paintings.

A reporter for Life Magazine did an article about Laos Stamps took this picture - a mistress of Leguay seem called Nang Sy and her daughter Eliane. This photo was inspired Leguay and he combined it in one of his paintings (See above) and of course in the stamp issued in 1957. Obviously the new stamp from 2010 is the mirror image without giving the credit to Leguay.
