Folk Crafts: Wood Carving (Joint Issue with Belarus)

Wikipedia: Folk Crafts: Wood Carving (Joint Issue with Belarus)
Wood carving is a form of woodworking by means of a cutting tool (knife) in one hand or a chisel by two hands or with one hand on a chisel and one hand on a mallet, resulting in a wooden figure or figurine, or in the sculptural ornamentation of a wooden object. The phrase may also refer to the finished product, from individual sculptures to hand-worked mouldings composing part of a tracery.  Read more..

I was lucky enough to receive the two letters below respectively franked with these series issued by the Post of Moldova and the Post of Belarus. The two postal administrations have printed these two stamps in only one sheet of 8 stamps (4 of each) with lateral margins illustrated with 8 carved pieces (4 from Moldova and 4 from Belarus).
