Stamp of the Day: Oyster Art

Henri Matisse's Still Life with Oyster is shown on this stamp from the Maldives [probably first link to CIA on this blog], a place I always wanted to visit. I wonder if that country will survive with the sea levels rising due to melting ice. It looks like Matisse didn't have a real oyster knife to open his dinner. If you want to get a real oyster knife, beware of DUKA employees in Sweden. They told a friend of mine that a parmesan knife was an oyster knife! Those two types look totally different.
