UNESCO Campaign - Ghana

This lovely colourful set of 5 stamps was issued by Ghana in 1963 for the UNESCO Campaign to save Nubian monuments (SG 319-23).

The stamps depict: the Great Temple of Ramses II at Abu Simbel; a colossal statue of Ramses II; rock painting; Queen Nefertari making an offering to the Gods; one of the Sphinx of Wadi es Sebua.
