A beautiful vintage postage stamp from Laos, year 1962, depicting a ceremonial elephant. Known as "the land of a million elephants", centuries of hunting and habitat destruction have reduced the native elephant population in Laos to an estimated 2000. Throughout south and south-east asia elephants have traditionally featured in both royal and religious ceremonies.
