Mother and sick child by Pablo Picasso
Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) - Mother and Sick Child (1903) Maldives Stamp Issued 1974 Painting held at the Barcelona Museum, Spain.
This is one of Picasso's earlier works, well before he started to mix up peoples faces. The Maldives is a beautiful group of tropical islands that are stretched intermittently across the Indian Ocean to the south of India. As the highest point of the Maldives is only 2 meters above sea level, it is one of the most threatened countries if sea levels do rise. They also issue stamps on many topics that have no relation to the Maldives as a way of raising revenue for the country.
